air con leak


Recommended Posts

recently got my x type with a 3 week old receipt for a new compressor and a regas only to find no aircon working after buying the car, turns out there was no gas in the system so went for a regas today and it failed to complete due to a leak, is there any way of finding the leak with no gas in the system also are the diy repair kits any good? thanks

In the 'old days' they used to add a UV florescent dye to the refrigerant so leaks were more easily detectable. No idea if they still do, but UV lights can be bought quite cheaply to do your own testing. I've had one for years.

I'm going to have to run it over my system

when I can get around to fitting new batteries

after I've found the damn thing 🙄
