Aircon refresh?

Hi all,

Thinking of doing an aircon service/recharge. It's around 95 at the dealer, is it worth it or should I not bother? (I leave climate control off for half of the time)

Thanks

What is your reasoning behind this? Does it not cool off very well? Mine takes no more than 1-2 minutes to get extremely cold. Pending how long it has been in direct sunlight.

Exactly. If it is cooling properly, there is no need to throw away 95 as a recharge will not help the system in any way.

Now if you start to have cool air from some of the vents and warm or ambient out of others, that is a sign of an undercharged system so save your money for when you will really need a recharge.
