The cars air-conditioner is an essential part of most cars and when it goes wrong high degrees of discomfort are experience. Many fly by night back yard mechanics offer air con regas. Tempted by the low prices offered car owners cause major damage to their cars air conditioning system by introducing uncontrolled amounts of gas into an aircon system that has not be put under vacuum to draw out any residual moisture.
When modern aircon gas mixes with even minute amounts of moisture a very strong acid is formed and severe damage to the cars air conditioner is caused. This will cause compressor failure in most cases within 6 months. When the compressor fails in most instances the condenser and the expansion valve must be replaced as well as the entire system being flushed out.
This can cost more than R13000 for an average sized family car.
