CX Aircon (Again)

Post by Stinkwheel » 02 Sep 2005, 23:33

Hello Folks,
Well my soon to be picked up Prestige obviously has air-con.
My last CX with air con was a 1984 25 Pallas ie, if i remember correctly the air on that was cold and refreshing (it had been properly serviced/recharged just beofre i got it) Question is will the prestiges be wanting attention??
The car has sat basically unused for about 18 months but prior to that was a fully functioning entity.
Likelyhood of seals needing renewing etc? I understand aircon can ruin itself if left unused, is this correct?
Any thoughts appreciated.

The chances of this still having enough gas in it to not trip the LP switch aren't good. Its usually recommended to run the AC once every 2 weeks to keep the seals wet with oil.
You've got the car now haven't you? does the AC work?
