Is it cheaper to just have a new system installed? or maybe just replace the whole car.
Depends on the issue. I think the issue with mine is the liquid lines if I am correct at assuming that is the correct name for the part?? I had a kinked long hard line the tech showed me a couple of hours ago. To replace and re-gas I am at $260 so far, providing nothing else goes wrong.
My bill has just gone over $400 as I have just found out the condenser is shot.
Aircond advice thread. My advice would be have it checked over thoroughly. Then have the front parts dismantled pipes and condenser taken off and inspect really well for any signs of wear before ordering any parts. Only then decide if you want to proceed, once you start it's hard to know at what point do you stop, because it just becomes ridiculous..??
Ended up costing 610 bucks. And it may still have problems later down the track
After running my aircon for about 10min a burning rubber smell starts coming through the vents, started happening earlier this year, any ideas? Had it gassed 5 yrs ago but barely ever use it..
Could be the compressor siezing and causing the belt to get hot as it drags over the compressor? Does it do it on both recycled and fresh air or fresh only?
I'd say the compressor is damaged. They need to be run most of the time to keep them functioning. If you hardly run the aircon the compressor does not get lubricated and eventual fail is inevitable. Although it seems odd that the vents have burning rubber smell because this suggests something is mixing with the air inside the cabin.
Is it burning rubber or burning plastic wire coating? It's somewhat common for the fan motors to fail.
