Car Air Conditioning

To keep your air conditioning system in peak performance, Mitchell's Motor Repairs recommend servicing your air conditioning system every 12 – 18 months.

Part of the system is a receiver dryer, which has the following functions:

  • To filter out any impurities and therefore protect the compressor.
  • It contains a desiccant to absorb the small amounts of moisture that are present in the system.
  • The system has a reservoir for the excess liquid refrigerant.

After a period of time/use the filter cannot perform the above functions as efficiently. Servicing becomes necessary not only to optimise performance but also to check for any potential problems before they occur. If the air conditioning dryer in your vehicle cannot be serviced we can replace the dryer for you.

Mitchell's Motor Repairs’ air conditioning service takes approximately 2 hours and consists of the following:

  • Check pressures and vents
  • Check temperature prior to service
  • Check all controls including air distribution
  • Analyse gas de-pressurise system, measure amount recovered
  • Replace drier and O-rings, add correct oil
  • Visual check of the condenser (clean with compressed air)
  • Visual check of air conditioning hoses (routing and condition)
  • Visual check of compressor mounting brackets
  • Visual check of compressor drive belt tension/condition
  • Evacuate and recharge system (we can regas both the older R134A gas and the newer, more eco-friendly R1234YF gas systems. )
  • Check vent temperatures and pressures
  • Check condenser fan operation
  • Check all electrics and controls
  • Check drainage tubes

As the only garage in the area to be both RAC and AA-Approved, our customers have double the reassurance of our commitment to them and this is a testament to the continuous hard work and dedication of every member of our valued team.
