Air Con Weakness?

Post by big-fish28 » Tue Aug 07, 2018 12:55 pm

I don't want to say that it's completely broken, but one of the air vents in my car has been incredibly weak recently - even when I put it up to full whack!

It's the right hand side vent that's in the centre of the vehicle, so pretty much the main way to cool yourself when you're driving. I don't mind driving with both of my windows down to keep cool during summer when I'm just on my commute to work or whatever, but when I have a passenger in the car it's either melt in the heat or not be able to hear each other.

It also means that quite a lot of creepy crawlies end up in my car at the moment... Has anyone else experienced this? I'm guessing something's just blocked in the vent but I'm not entirely sure how to fix it/what actions to take.

Any responses are much appreciated. Cheers everyone :)

Check pollen filter may need changing

You need to have recirculation on to get any benefit from the aircon in this car and 90% of the air then bypasses the filter anyway. Its a tiny aircon in a tiny car. Give it sone help with the recirc.
