Does Your Volvo or Toyota Need An Air Con Service?

  • Friday, July 19th, 2019

The blog this week is about how to tell if your Volvo or Toyota needs an air con service? Read below to find out our tips:

Air con Service

There are some tips we can tell you that you can perform at home to see if your air con is in need of a service or some attention by a qualified and certified air con garage.

The first thing to do is start your car and then turn on the air con. Does it sound normal? Or are there some unusual noises coming from the system? If this all seems fine, is the air coming out nice and cold and is the pressure ok? Next you should be checking for smells. Does it smell clean or is there an unpleasant odour? If there is there could be an issue with the filter or there could be a leak in the system. This could happen also if you do not use your air con system throughout the year so it has been sat idle with old fluid in the pipes. The next thing you should be checking is if the compressor is making a clicking noise – this sound happens when the compressor is engaging and disengaging. If you have any issues it is best to seek professional advice from a qualified and authorised independent garage. Please do not assume you just need an air con re gas as you could just be throwing money down the drain especially if there is a leak in the system. Your local independent garage can perform a check for leaks before performing a re gas of the system. Happy Motoring Folks!
