Common Place for Air Con Leaks?

964 Views 7 Replies 5 Participants Last post by  mabrams
I had my air con re-gased in the summer but after about 6 weeks, the pressure went down to zero (as indicated by putting the climate control into diagnostics mode).

Is anyone out there aware of common places for leaks and is this going to cost me loads? [v]

This is a great forum by the way - very useful. [;)]

The three most common places are: high pressure hose off compressor,(hope it's this!) compressor itself and the worst possible, and VERY common, the evaporator. Do yourself a favor and have dye installed for proper diagnosis....
