Air Con temperature varies
« on: May 15, 2019, 08:09:09 AM »
I have a 2008 Ford Galaxy ghia with the rear air con and duel climate control. Since having a new condenser and regas the temperature varies from one vent to the next (see pics) 

One vent goes as low as 8.5c whereas another will be blowing 16c. 

Any ideas what might be causing this?

Blend flap issue maybe? Not allowing full cooling on one side. Have you got any diagnostic equipment forscan etc to plug in and check for faults/live data?

Indeed, this sounds very much like a blend flap issue.

I used to have a Saab 9-5 and they are notorious for it. A real sod of a job to sort out. They used plastic instead of metal on the blend door lever!

One of the reasons I've avoided new-style Ford Galaxies is because of all that cheap-looking silver plastic. It looks so brittle and like the sort of stuff that's bound to cause problems. Clips breaking off when you try and remove trim, rods and levers snapping, that sort of thing. Plus the central handbrake lever looks like the sort of thing you would expect for controlling the parking brakes on a Boeing 737. I have no idea why they couldn't have designed that to be smaller and more elegant.
I drive a Seat Alhambra 1.9Tdi which has 115bhp and an automatic gearbox.

I am happy to help you with all your questions. I am not a qualified mechanic but seem to be better at fixing my car than even the most experienced garages.

I have lots of friends here and very much enjoy talking with you all.

Always remember, a motor car is a serious tool and should be treated with respect. Put your safety first, always.
