Aircon Re-gas

Recommended Posts

What's the cheapest/best/easiest method these days?

Nothing's broken it's just not cold and after 18 years I reckon it just needs charging.

Are the Halfords kits any good? Easy to do on a GTI?

The Halfords STP kits are ok, but you can get slightly cheaper kits on ebay.

Never tried it myself, but I remember reading that the cheapest people to take cars to get recharged was not garages but HVAC companies

Use an HVAC company. You most likely have a leak; the condenser is the most likely culprit. Look for traces of oil. An HVAC company should be able to test for leaks but you will then have to repair if they find a leak and then bring them back to refill the system. Replacing the dryer would be a good idea regardless.
