  4. Aircon - Rubbish or Faulty ?

    General Discussion (9G)
    So i had my Aircon re-gassed at the beginning of summer and although it was slightly colder it has always seemed to be lacking compared to other cars i've had in the past which are much older. I've managed to hold out this long but with the warranty period becoming very close is this something...

    Bugs, faults and irritations (8G)
    Hi All, I'm in need of a new condenser for my 1.8ES hatch. I had a mobile air-con engineer come out to re-gas and check a short while ago. He used a gas sniffer and found a small leak from the condenser which will obviously need changing. I've spent some time reading past posts and doing...

    Electronics (8G)
    I had my 08 Civic 1.8 VTEC regassed today and there's no leaks on the AC system, as I had that checked. But when the guy at the garage tested the AC afterwards, it worked for about 10 seconds before blowing warm. I can hear a click when starting the car with the AC on which I believe to be the...

    Electronics (8G)
    Hi all, I recently took my car for its annual service at a Honda Dealer. Whilst carrying out the service they recommended an air conditioning recharge, which I agreed to. Before this point I had never had any issues with the air conditioning in 3 years. After the service I didn’t use the air...

    Hello all, I've got a niggly problem with my air conditioning. It sesm sometimes I have to turn it on and off a few times to get the cooling to actually 'wake up' and when it does it's very efficient. I'm wondering if it's a sticking relay - has anyone had the same issue. No warnings or...
