I only know of Chris Cool, but have never used him.
I do know that compressors are very expensive when new, if a second hand/reconditioned one is fitted its pot luck if you get a good one.
If your system only needs re-gassing once a year its not worth paying for a replacement.

Thanks, both, I do know AC compressors are very expensive I had a new one fitted to a Golf I once had here it cost well over €420's , I would not chance a pre-owned unit personally.

I used the service center next to Costas tire shop who he recommended, what they did was put yellow dye into the system to see where if at all it was escaping from then they use special glasses to check for leaks, it was not obvious, the re-gas would only last two weeks or so, will let you know of the outcome.

How much was the reg-ass there Jim? I will need mine doing this year as although it is working it doesn't get cold enough during the really hot months.

Morning....uncle

Most places charge about €40 that I have used, but this was slightly different as he injected dye into the system to check where the gas was escaping, so all in all €50's I guess you could find the top up cheaper if you shopped around, as I was having two full sets of tires put on our cars I decided to use this shop..as Costas recommended.

The cost is relative to the amount of refrigerant and dye put in the system. That depends upon the volume of gas your car has in its pipework and so on. Each car is different. Your car will likely have sticker/plate in the engine bay with the type of refrigerant in the system such as R134 and the amount for example 0.6kg. My experience is work on about €10 per 0.1 kg so for my car its €60 plus a few €s extra for the flouro dye.

I have never heard that they can do that uncle, sounds feasible I guess, I do not think that gas will stay in my cars system and the point of the yellow dye testing for leaks, I will return to the workshop come the time it will need another gas refill, again I will let you know what happens and if I need a new compressor the cost of that too.

cheers.

Update.
I gave up on the AC chap next to Costas Tyre shop, he was always too busy with commercial vehicles and they seemed just not to have the time.
So went to this venue that was recommended to me by Lloyd 'Autokinhton' or 'Autoclima' on the Geroskipou industrial estate, turns out it was not a leakage of Freon Gas or the AC Compressor but a control unit at the back of the dashboard, he replaced this at a cost of €50 total now, it IS cold!! (Stelios on 99498204) highly recommended, he only services Auto AC nothing else he told me.

His email is snautoclima@cytanet.com.cy

I need my car AC regassed but it needs R1234 which I believe is not common over here and will be expensive. Does anyone know who has this gas and the machine to do the job?

I also needed some work on our Nissan and called Stelios at 8am yesterday, he said he would be there at 9am, he was late and I gave up, warning first thing in the morning it is VERY busy with commercials being repaired over the road, so bad we had to walk back several hundred meters just to park up, had a New Condenser replaced at a family friends workshop just up the road from Chris Cool..Seems to have done the job..
