Hi there


I've got a 2006 Alhambra (same as galaxy MkII) with 2.0tdi and climatronic.


Driving to south of France tomorrow, so thought i'd have a play with the aircon, leaving it rather late but at least having replaced the broken coil spring first!


Have  a Halfords aircon gas bottle, which i used to try and fill the system, it only seemed to take part of the gas (and i assumed it to be empty initially, although not certain), but surprisingly the compressor did run, however there is no cool air coming out.


I dont see any fault codes, which i assume would be there if it were a pressure sensor, and i'd assume would stop the compressor running? Has anyone got any idea what to try next? Could it be the radiator/evaporator? or could it be anything else?
