    They wouldn't even do it probably, it would get done at the local air con place. Take it there yourself, it should be about £70 - £90. What parts would they change????

    the charge for regassing last year was around the £80 mark so interested to know what else this "service" does.

    Well i rang another dealer and they quoted me £89.95 for everything so i think leicester must have got confused with something else.

    Still expesnive when i can take it to stoke audi with dave for £59.00 or nationwide autocentres for £59.95!

    I went to Bath Audi last week and got quoted £189 for an air-con service.

    Ended up going to Heritage VW in Westbury and getting it done for £67.50 including a change of pollen filter and running through the old anti-bacterial stuff as well.

    There is an Air Con section at the bottom of the forum page, maybe questions could be answered from there.

    nah, they wont come as far as me, annoying really, but if its £60 its still cheap and if they do a good job i dont mind waiting!

    Did they
    Odour/Bacterial Removal Treatment as part of the service for you? as it seems to be extra for this which i find strange!

    lol - im not sure about the odour/bacterial removal.... all i wanted was a regass but for an extra £10 they service it, i ddint ask any questions cos mine didnt stink, just phoned him up on a thursday and he came round on a sunday.

    the job he did was good, my a/c was blowing cool air like it wasnt even on, when he was done, he showed me the new reading and it was COLD!!

    hope that helps mate, let us know how it goes.

    Birmingham mate, minworth.

    Have his mobile if you want to give him a ring.

    If your in the catchment area he will come to you, if not you can go to him.

    Just been to have my car's air con regassed and checked for leaks and it appears that I need a new compressor! They've regassed it and not charged me (they'll charge me when I take it back) but they said £600 all in. The Bosch compressor they would buy is around £420 opposed to the Audi one which is £650. The mechanic said that the compressor seems to be more flaky on the 2.0 TDI's and in general the 2005-2006 A4's always seem to have problems.

    I'm not happy, this f*c*ing car is costing me a fortune and I'm seriously thinking about dumping it. £420 for a compressor!? I can get a massive fridge-freezer for that!

    Anyone know where I can see the part number for the compressor, presumably I have to get underneath the car?
