Stupidly I took my Nissian Note 62reg to Kwik Fit to have the air con regassed. Ever since we drove out of the garage the air con will be coldish for about 10 minutes and then it blows warm/hot air through. Having just spent an afternoon at Kwik Fit they have now said I need a new Air Conditioning compressor at £700. They didn't get any readings up on the computer to support this but one of the mechanics did force a part (maybe a switch) at the bottom left side of the engine which then made the air con come out cold. I have seen from other people's post they have experienced similar problems but haven't read anywhere what the solution was. Please could someone advise me? Many thanks.

Take the car to an air-conditioning specialist.


KwikFit are good for tyres but I would not trust them or any other 'two blue bottles' place to actually fix an AC fault.

Hi mate - hoping you got this fixed? I would dread for this to happen over the summertime, not ideal ! I'm interested to see how you resolved this one or if you had to fork out £700.

Does it blow cold if you drive on a fast road for a bit? On some cars there's a fan for the AC compressor, if the fan stops working the car will stop the compressor when it gets hot to avoid damaging it. You can tell if this is the case because if you drive along a motorway with 70mph headwinds going into the engine this will cool it down and it'll start blowing cold again. Or you can look in the engine bay and check that the AC fan comes on with the compressor.
