    AIR CON NOT WORKING ?

    Hi,can any body help me with the problem,the air con in my car is not working properly in the recent spell of hot weather i have had the settings on low but it is only blowing out hot air.
    does the system need regassing ?
    I have VAG COM but it does not show any faults.Is there a way using VAG COM to see if it does needs regassing?

    Does the ECON light stay on permanantly?

    It most likely needs regassing yes.

    With the engine running, the ECON mode disabled and the temp to LO in Auto check under the bonnet that the fan on the front of the car on the right (as you look at it) is spinning.

    Also get someone else in the car to press the ECON button on and off while you look at the compressor (mounted to the left of the engine and driven by a belt) and make sure as the button is turned on and off that the clutch is going in and out. You should hear the clunk at least.

    You've either got it on ECON where the compressor doesn't kick in to save fuel, or it probably just needs a regas. To stop this from happening again you should use the air con on the lowest setting every so often, to keep the juices flowing, so to speak.
