    Car is a A3 2.0tdi 2004.

    Had some warm weather today so tried the AC for the first time since owning the car.

    The blowers never really got cold? I have the dual dial set up and turned both these down to low and tried it with auto press and without.
    Am i doing it right? Do i even have AC? Or will i need the AC topping up?

    Thanks

    Looks like it needs a re-gas then.

    Not really relevant but I took some pipes off my air con last week and the liqued got on my hand and it swelled up.
    The gas makes you dizzy aswell when the valve is bled.

    It does not have a AC button or light. If i remember right it has a auto button , econ, one with a arrow and another with an arrow with a A on it. Read the manual when i first got it, will try amd find the time to have a quick look.

    Top tip, take it to Kwik-Fit for a regas. They do it for about 50 quid and if it doesn't hold charge they don't charge you.

    I'm sorry but this was a pretty stupid thing to do. If you're not trained then do not touch air con pipes.
