  • Aircon regassing - Aultomotive

    Can anyone help me out please!
    All places are charging the earth, and saying they can't do it til the 4th at the earliest.

    if it uses the old gas then use they will charge the earth, if you can find the old gas. Otherwise if the system needs converting they will charge through the arse as well.

    What car/year?

        Gas converted or not? I.e. has it been regassed before?

        If not you'll need the conversion ($$$$) if it has already been done by previous owner it should be not too expensive...

        There should be a stamp/plate somewhere certifiying wether or not this has been done

          Do you know if the aircon has been converted for the new gas?

            I doubt converted, but from what I am hearing, it's only about an extra $80 or so for the conversion.

            EDIT: I just need someone to do it asap.

              really? only $80 more? I was under the impression it was more. Cool

              As far as ASAP goes, well you know what happens to the pool/air con industry in summer eh

                you can't just regas it as it were. It lost gas, it has a leak , quoting the Montreal protocol " though shall not detroy the earth and though shalt minimise gas leaks to fuckall". Hence the leak has to be repaired and the cost must go up.

                sorry
                that'll be $40 for the advise.

                  check plate on firewall in engine bay, should be one there listing refrigerant gas type - i.e. R12, R134a. if converted, will be a new(ish) plate added listing new refrigerant.

                    really doesn't matter what gas is in it. If you can find someone willing to part with R12 for less than $50 a kilo you will be lucky beyound belief and if its R134a is still has to have the leak fixed, the drier changed out, evacuated and charged again.....

                            What he said. Its actually illegal just to "top up" the gas. Source of gas has to be found and fixed 1st.
