What do I need to know about the Air Con on my car?


When you have a fault in the air conditioning of your car you may notice:

  • Hot air blowing from the ventilation duct in summer
  • Your windscreen not clearing in winter
  • No air blowing from the ventilation duct
  • Whining noise from behind the dashboard of your car

  • Perished seals causing gas leaks
