C5 air con - system u/s is there a fix or forget it???

Post by amjake » 24 Apr 2010, 21:18

Hi all

Car went in for air con service yesterday as not getting cold.

Garage tested and compressor u/s replacement plus filter, parts, flush etc. looking at £700 - 800.

On a 2002 C5 I have to ask is there a cheaper alternative way for repair, quoted £400 for compressor, seen on ebay new patent £285 but still means a fair few £££'s to fork out for repair and reset.

Is it blowers and open windows for the summer or suggestions for an affordable fix will be most welcome.

Cheers

Kevin
