I need to get the AC re-gased (hasn't been done in 7+ years of ownership) for a 2007 Toyota Auris (Jap Corolla) as it's no longer blowing out cold air. Any recommendations on places to go in Wellington?
Air Con Re-Gas in Wellington
I think chrisfix has a video on how to do it yourself.
Please do not just refill. It's a closed system. The gas doesn't get used up. If it's got no gas in there it's leaking.
Thanks. I won't be doing it myself so assume wherever I take it will be able to check how much is there currently and therefore whether it's leaking?
Often it just leaks away through the seals. Especially if you don't use it often enough and the seals dry out.
Ended up costing $230+gst from A/C Pro and it was a mobile service. Got quoted $250 & $320 +gst from a couple of other places.
Its roughly $180-$200
I used a mobile guy found through google.
There isnt much variation in the job, pretty straight forward. He tried to charge extra to test for leaks with a dye, but i said just to refill it. He tested it anyway for free.
I would suggest a simple refill and dont go for any extra offers.
