I've looked around my area and am being quoted around the £80 mark , am being told because of age of car and because its not been topped up it will need a clean first. - I've got another couple of places to ring though.
I took my last car a 63 plate leon fr to a recommended garage for a re gas.
He did it but said my compressor was failing and said he would fix it for £400!
I took it straight to Seat in Stoke they tested it, it had been re gassed but the compressor was running at 98% efficiency.
I went back told him he was a crook.
He didn't offer a refund on the re gas.
Ain't been back.
As above, get a Groupon voucher for ATS, I got mine done about a year ago with no issues. They do a leak test first and if all good then do a re-gas but if there is a leak then there is nothing they can do.
I've had no probs with the aircon at all after this
HI, tha appears as if ATS have quoted for the newer gas? there should be a sticker under the bonnet stating the type ie FR134a, an 04 Fiesta I would not expect to require that newer (more expensive) gas, they've made a mistake or trying it on?, the couplings for the two different gases are different sizes and cannot be mixed. £120 for both cars seems fair, hope it has improved a/c performance.
It sure is roasting, glad I got my AC done last year - only paid £30.00 inc VAT for discharge, oil and recharge. We can ignore the fact I fitted a new condenser which was more than double the cost of the refill
