It has recently been really hot and to my surprise on the hottest day of the year my ac was not working.
I took it to halfords to get the ac recharged however when they attached the pressure gauge it did not register anything, obviously with the car running and ac turned to max.
I checked for the compressor and it does kick in as you can hear the engine working harder.
Is this something like a block or a leak? Or is it that I havent recharged it for the past year (and I have no idea when the last time the person before me recharged it) might it be that its never charged?
Is there any other checks I can do? Or do I have to take it to a garage or BMW?
Compressor kick in as the engine started reving and shaking... Like something in the back of the engine started...
I'll turn on and check along the line...
I was also thinking of taking it for a service in case there are a lot of bits in the pipes and it is blocked
Took it to the garage.. compressor doesn't appear to be moving. However there is literally nothing in terms of gas in the system at all!! So I will take it to halfords to fill it up .. the guy said the person probably didn't screw it in and if there is nothing inside then how would it create pressure? Is this true?
