Hello
I have a 2017 308 sw 1.6 bluehdi. Good motor but now its annoying me. The aircon stops working properly after about half an hour or so when the air temp goes above about 30 C. It blows warm basically. After a pit stop it comes back on for ten minutes or so then fails again. Not too clever in this darned heatwave :mad:. Any ideas? Mileage is 62k

Cheers

Todd

It's under manufacturer warranty, it's your Peugeot main dealers problem.

My 308 did have a faulty aircon pressure sensor replaced under warranty.

I had poor aircon performance due to implausible sensor value.

Not true, it is not typical for any car unless there is a leak somewhere. Type of gas is not important, since AC is closed system.

That is true. But gas should not be lost if everything is in order. Servicing is mostly recommended to replace oil in the system.

Peugeot confirmed that 60k cut off for me in an email, its p*ss poor in this day and age. Maybe I should have bought a Kia:(

None of the seals are 100% and the move away from CFC based refrigerants has made it more of a problem. Most service schedules have a regular check and regass as needed check included to keep on top of the problem

Gas is ALWAYS lost... it is not a perfectly sealed system. For example the pump has seals around the pump shaft, those always leak because it will. Not a significant amount but over the years, it will go down...some more than others. Those rubber hoses you see? Again, you will lose the AC refrigerant through that too.

OP's post was down to AC refrigerant pressure, had a friend with a similar problem. That is a serviceable item, similar to complaining about brake pads wearing out.

Kia might have a 7 year warranty but it is just that. A warranty. It isn't a guarantee. The difference being wear and tear isn't covered. You can also pay a little bit more to extend the warranty on your peugeot anyway. If you are close to the limits, i.e, 2000 miles over the stated 60k annual miles, write into peugeot headquarters, they might throw you a bone.

Ok thanks for the advice
My Son is in the motor trade and got me a good deal on a 3 year extended warrany. Gasses do permeate thru seals etc so yes Ok I'll get the gas checked.

I am curiously fond of my "pug" and the fuel mileage is amazing at >>60mpg overall, it's only the gearchange that lets it down a bit but hey it is french.....

Many thanks to all
