I've got a 2008 Mondeo and just noticed that the a/c is not working. I've read the air con explanation below and sussed that in my case it's probably the seals gone dry and air loss due to not being used much over the last 6 or so months. 1) How can I check out if its the seals? 2) Can top up kits be purchased readily for DIY top up, if not 3)Can anyone recommend a company that they have used to fix seals / top up for me?

i wouldn't use the diy top up kits personally, if you were to do something wrong, you could end up with serious injuries, this is best left to the experts, i believe this time of year places like kwikfit are cheaper than in the summer... You will get a a/c system test and a refill for your money. http://www.kwik-fit....d-servicing.asp

Just in case anyone's still using this 35 bar is approx 515 psi and a pipe would of blown off by this point. The hp switch cut out is nearer 22 bar approx and the system low side runs at approx 2 bar when on use and 6-7 bar when standing. The Lp switch cutout would be around 10 15 psi ( 1 bar) approx, good guide just a little out on the readings.
