Vauxhall Corsa D - Corsa Air Con - Chrissy_ccc
Hi, I have a 2014 Corsa which I recently had regassed after the air con stopped working. After this the air con was amazing for about a week... and now it's just blowing warm, sometimes a bit cool but not what I'd expect from air con. I asked if there were any leaks when I had it regassed as it's still under warranty until September and they said it's fine just needed the regas. However it's also still hissing when I use it, the hissing comes and goes. I don't want to take it to the garage if it's just how it is, but I don't remember it being a problem last summer! Any ideas?

The "hissing" sound is a classic sympton of the system being low on gas charge.A less than 3 year old car should not a recharge unless there is a leak.Take it back and get them to fix it under warranty.

Thanks for your reply. I had it regassed little over a month ago, and thought it was a bit soon for its age.

The issue seemed to start after I had my service, is it plausible that something was knocked during this? I mentioned this when I booked it in the first time and she was a little defensive in that they don't touch they aircon during the service.

Very unlikely to be related to the service. Take it back and request a proper investigation.

If you can hear a hissing noise when the A/C is running then my guess would be a punctured comdenser most likely caused by being struck by a stone. If so a replacement under warranty is unlikely. It's one of those things I'm afraid.
