    Hi,

    just a quick couple of questions...

    1) my air con doesen't seem to want to work after a hour into a long journey. I think its something to do with my pipes freezing up. Should my pipes look like this?? The white stuff is hard-ice/frost...like you see in a freezer.

    2) Can i buy the 170bhp rear valance from my local audi dealership (sline avant) and how much does it cost?

    Thank you!!!

    I would not use the aircon atm mate & get it checked asap as tbh that certainly isnt right, never seen that on a car aircon pipe, maybe its got a blockage, a pressure switch etc has failed, a regas station wont help imho, it needs a proper garage check as it would appear a part has failed on initial thought.

    Get the car scanned as it may have thrown a fault code & thus point you to the faulty part.
