Not sure really what you can check. I did try and watch the clutch on the front of the compressor to see if was pulling in but it’s hard to see. Unless you have the correct gauges you can’t check if the gas has leaked out. The bottom line is has the system lost gas? If it has there is a leak. I took a video of my condenser using my boresope in case they try and blame a leak on stone damage but maybe I’m being paranoid.Gutted to have read about this, but glad I did!
Just booked in to Cardiff Honda to get my Oct 2018 Civic's AC looked at. Bought the car from Cazoo, who were fantastic btw. Typically I noticed the AC went as my 90 day Cazoo warranty went.
I bought the car as I deal with Honda's central engineering (in Japan) with work and the way they work made me think this car would be built like a tank.
I just hope that Honda Cardiff have had to deal with this before and will accept the 'globally known fault' line if it comes down to it!
What should I be checking for under the bonnet before I take it there?
i am not aware of any checks you can do.
Just as an aside. I’ve had dozens of company cars until I retired and probably covered 200000 miles in cars with AC and I also own a 26 year old MX5 and in all these vehicles there has never been any issue with the AC due to stone damage so I think Honda talk S**T
