I visually inspected the condenser via the lower front grille,,obviously cant see any leaks as such but its got plenty of bugs in it and the bottom rail has a gentle departure from the horizontal,,chances are it is this as its the most vulnerable component, I may just bite the bullet and have it done,,i may then look to getting some kind of mesh to mesh off the lower grille so that there is air flow but more protection. Has anyone done this? The condenser is in a very low,vulnerable position and the existing bumper grille has such huge gaps in it..wide open really..

Well its that time of year again and of course the aircon isnt working.
As a follow on from my previous posts, i had a specialist replace the condenser unit, leak test it and recharge the system. It all looked good. This was in mid 2019 . Back end of 2020 the aircon stopped again and so im pondering my options.

Im pretty certain it has depressurised yet again as the compressor isnt kicking in.

It had a new relay about two years back even though there was nothing wrong with the old one.

Are there any fuses to check?

Should i just give up and admit depeat? Are honda civic mk8s known for having crap unreliable aircon?
