Thank you. Also hopefully useful info for others.

Just been back to KF re the air con. Apparantly the system was empty, so it looks like a leak. They have refilled it and right now it's cold but if it's slowish leak apparantly their equipment can't detect it. If it doesn't work this time, they have offered a refund in line with their guarantee, so you can't complain about that. I'll have to find somebody with better gear and some UV glasses.

What i'd suggest Mark is if you get a refund from KF, find an A/C specialist and go there. Explain the situation to them and see what they suggest which i suspect will be along the lines of vac it down and check it holds, if so regas it with the correct oil and amount of gas but adding a leak detector dye and a leak sealer.

Then use the A/C as much as possible - you don't have to be cold, you can still set the heater to hot or whatever temperature you like, the heater will just be heating conditioned air instead. This will help circulate the leak sealer and the oil which will help revive the seals and keep them from drying out. That could well be all you need to get it sorted then regular use of at least a single 20 minute (uninterrupted) session every 3-4 weeks should keep everything as it should be.

If it does leak, take it back to the specialist and they should have a UV light source and be able to find the leak.

With winter on its way, the A/C will be very ueful for demisting the screen! :wink: :D
Cheers,
Dave
