C5 aircon recharge


Guys,

Can anybody recommend a good mobile AC mechanic.
I want to get the aircon on my C5 serviced/refilled as I think its a little low on gas ( hasn't been done in years) and a possible small leak looked at.

So does anyone know of someone who covers the Woodford Essex area please let me know.

Cheers
Stuart.

two onto the compressor. Using an ultra violet light you can see where the leak has been spraying onto the inner wing. shows up as a white mist. Keith at Eurovetts got the seals for me whole set was about $7. Mines still not as cold as i would like so perhaps compressor or condenser on there way out.??

Yep sure could be if its not cooling properly.. my compressor is leaking oil so of course gas is getting out too. Getting it checked out tomorrow by a local guy and if needs be I will put a new comp on it and all the other bits that go with it!
