A.C. gas leak

Hi all, quick question. I had my 2011 model re-gassed last week only to have the A.C. stop working again. The mechanic said he doesn't see a gas leak and the problem could be under the dash, which will be in the thousands to fix. Has anyone else experienced this before?

Thanks,
Dekkar

Sounds like he’s just guessing. They should have put some dye in when it was regassed. You need an ultra violet torch to check all over the system to see where the leak is. Take it to a specialist and not just a general mechanic.

Hi Steve, thanks for the reply. I've booked it in with an Auto Electrician who knows AC..... You were right about the guessing. They told me that it wasnt their thing, and referred me to someone else. We shall see!!

Most leaks are the condenser radiator - usually corrosion or stone damage. Let us know how you get on.
