Yeah, next time it’s a Nissan! :s
I guess you’re right about the Opel garage, but other mechanics have told me they;re well-known for such practices. I used to go to the one in town; now I’m trying the Xindian one.
The air-con was fine. Now, it’s completely dead - only the fan is working. Basically, there’s no cooled air coming out, and the part of the car below my radio that normally gets cold when the air-con is on (I know NOTHING about cars, obviously) is not cold any more, so I don’t think it’s a blockage. A loose wire sounds like the most likely reason to me.
Last summer, I had EVERYTHING done to the air-con by many mecahnics, before the Opel garage finally cleared the blockage that was the real cause of the problem. It was cheap and successful.
MJB, any advice you can offer is much appreciated. I’ve spent fortunes on this thing, but can’t afford to let it go.
