Default Aircon not working fully! ideas please

Hi,

2014 Allure Pug 308. The aircon is blowing cool but not cold. I noticed when pressing the AC switch the fan speed decreased a little, however the vehicle was stationary. I was going to get regased however I am wondering if it could be something else?
How I check the compressor is working?
Could the cabin filter be blocked?

Thanks.

Suggest you read this thread:

Unlikely to be the filter and only a qualified garage can check for leaks etc.

Hope you get it sorted.

Al.

Can you hear any sort of 'hissing' sounds coming from anywhere while the AC is on?

I just recently got my 2014 308's air con fixed and mine had leaked out rather slowly since last summer when it was gassed from purchasing it.

Turns out the problem was a small hole in the condensor.
All been replaced now and so far () it's been working fine.

It wasn't cheap (for the warranty company) to get it sorted though at 600+.

That's not good though, if there were no leaks, you shouldn't need the gas topping up after barely 4 years.

Has yours got this new coolant gas, the propane based one? If so how much did the regass cost roughly?

I agree. When mine was checked it seemed it was a known fault for cars of this age.

Did you get the check done at you local Peugeot dealer?....or some other place?

Ive only had the car 6 months. It's possible the previous owner didn't use it, causing the gas the disappear they need to be used regularly to keep the gas active. Yes it's on the new system. 125

He's put UV dye in the system so if there is a leak it will be spotted

isnt the recommendation every 2 years?

The gas is very expensive. I will see what happens no leaks could be found. I had it done my staykool in Derby.
