Misty windows, musty odours & sneezing more than usual can all be a sign that your air-conditioning needs a service.
Your air conditioning system can severely affect the air quality inside your car, when it’s not properly cared for.
Over 80% of Volkswagen group vehicles are fitted with air conditioning and climate control systems as standard these days. Many of us are familiar with using air-con in our car on both hot and cold days, but not many people are aware that like other parts of your car, the air-conditioning system also needs regular attention to make sure it is working efficiently.
You may not be aware that over 10% of air-con gas permeates from the air-con system every year, which means that it may not work as well as it should. This is why the Volkswagen group recommend your Air-Con system is recharged with gas and lubricant every 2 years.
This service is not part of routine vehicle servicing, so if your vehicle is more than 2 years old it’s probably due a recharge.
