    AIRCON RECHARGING

    Can anyone give me any advice on the recharging of the aircon system. How long from new will it be before a system needs recharging? How much does it cost?

    Re: AIRCON RECHARGING

    People don't realise that the aircon system needs regular maintenence. You're supposed to get it serviced annually, but nobody does.
    The gas lasts between 3 to 6 years depending on use and leaks. Ultimately the gas leaks in all systems (even without a fault), it will physically leak through the actual rubber on the pipework. If the system was constructed like a fridge, with metal pipework, then it would last forever.
    A regas will cost between 65-100 depending where you go. If the vehicle is out of warranty I would take it to an aircon spercialist (especially if you've got a fault or suspected leak). Audi seem to know very little about aircon systems, although that won't stop them charging 100 for a regas.

    Whats the difference between "servicing" and "regassing" surely theres not much that needs doing other than regassing.
