    HI All now the summer is here my Aircon appears to be playing up
    I have an A4 B5 1.9tdi avant 1999 model with the Climate control
    It was re gassed last April and work great but now if i have it blowing quickly e.g. if i set it to low or 18degrees on a hot day it cools down but seems very slowly to how i remember, if i drop the fan speed down then it gets icy cold a lot quicker.

    Any ideas for this one

    Thanks in Advance

    have you checked the pollen filter? if its blocked, it will slow the air flow down quite a lot... (reminds me, mine needs doing :D)

    At a guess, assuming ofcourse it doesnt have a leak thats let all the gas out, the drier is probably worn out and needs replacing.
