    Aircon faulty?

    My nice new collected on Wednesday A3 is steaming up!

    No other car I've had with aircon ever has, and more importantly my last A3, always left on Auto, never did either.

    Is there a simple test I can do (non technical - don't get me in the engine with wires ) to test it and see if it is working or not?

    I tried turning it as low as it would go and it was cold (though not very) but it was cold outside anyway.

    I take it the ECON button isn't lit?

    Does sound like it's knackered tbh. Acid test is, when it's steamed up, stick it on demist and it should clear within seconds.

    I would not worry about it too much, mine does it and i just turn it up full and it soon burns off. Give the dealer a call and ask them?

    The only thing I could think of to test it would be to turn it down low
