Aircon starting cold, then blowing warm.
First post, so hello all!
So I have a 2010 Type S 2.2CDTI and the Aircon is playing up. Just from skimming over the some of the problems here it seems AC is somewhat of a common problem on these cars.
I started to notice in the warmer weather that the AC is struggling in the higher temperatures. Weird thing is that for the 5 - 10 mins it blows out very cold, and then gradually as the car warms up, the AC starts to blow warmer and warmer.
I got it regassed this morning, and initially it seemed to do the trick as it was blowing out ice cold as I pulled away from the garage. However after taking a little drive through the country lanes this afternoon in the 22-24C heat, it started to blow out warm again.
I've checked the fuses and it seems I still have the old Omron relay, so I guess thats first on the list to replace. If I recall, you used to be able to hear the click of the solenoid when you turned the AC on and off, however I can't hear it anymore, so it could possibly be the relay?
