Title: MKII galaxy Aircon questions
Post by: regw on July 23, 2019, 05:22:01 PM

More minor quibbles:  :)

Its hot and stuffy today and had the aircon on
for relatively short trips around North Bristol fetching and carrying stuff

The air from the vents is definitely cool, but not exactly chilly
which got me wondering if the aircon is up to snuff.
perhaps the short journeys didn't allow it to perform fully?
Any way to check?
 
The thing is, we get say 10 days of really hot weather out of 365 which makes me wonder
is it worth spending dosh on a check/recharge  or just live with it?

Thoughts chaps?

I never found the air con especially efficient on the galaxy,dryer filter change and regal helped but it still didnít perform that well. If been running a while and under bonnet temps up it was better but short journeys it didnít cool the cabin

On hot days I hose the car down with the hose pipe so that it cools it down a bit before I drive off. Also open all the windows and drink plenty of water. If you freeze a lemonade bottle overnight and carry that with you it helps too
