Air con blowing warm


Recommended Posts

I picked my XE R sport 2015 up in March. Only just tried to use the air con but its blowing warm air. Is there a historic fault, i.e the condenser or does it just need a re-fill?

Hi Premski.

I've not heard of there being an inherent fault with the XE. Where did you get the car from? I'm only asking as my XE was not from a main dealer but it did come with a 3 month warranty. It may be worth asking the dealership if they could rectify it. If the purchase was private then I think the cheapest option would be to go to an AC specialist and get him to look at it. They can do a pressure test to see if there is any gas in the system, If the system is empty they will also do a pressure test to see if it will hold pressure before putting gas into it! Sorry I can't be of more help.聽馃槓

I got it from a dealership and paid extra for a 3 year full warranty, Think i may try and get a re-gas and test first. Just that I read some post saying it was a common issue with earlier Jaguars. Thank you for your advice.

Premski. I wouldn't take it anywhere except straight back to the dealer. If you have someone else look at it before they do then you've given them a "get out of jail free" card and they may refuse to rectify it. The fact that you have have paid extra to get a 3 year extended warranty, you may as well take full advantage of it. I would have thought A/C would be covered!

I had the same problem 3 weeks ago and my Jaguar dealer topped up the refrigerant FOC (not under warranty either) and checked for leaks.I have heard that during manufacture that the refrigerant is just enough to make it work. After 4-5 years the pressure can drop and needs regassing.

Hi, I have just discovered an issue too with the A/C on my 2017 XE R Sport. 聽A good friend regassed it at his garage but discovered a leak on the aluminium pipe that goes to the condenser. He contacted a supplier that told him to change the pipe we will need to change the condenser too and it is a known issue. Any help would be appreciated, around 拢480 for parts only I believe.
