    Fixter chose a garage that were unable to update my online servicing record for a Range Rover Evoque, despite the fact it claims on its website that this will be done. I would not have used Fixter had I been aware of this whilst booking.

Edinburgh

Edinburgh is the capital city of Scotland, in the county of Midlothian, with an estimated population of 488,000.

It is the 2nd biggest city in Scotland (by population) and the 7th in the UK.

Most famous for Edinburgh Castle and the famous Edinburgh International Festival and Festival Fringe, that celebrates the performing arts, theatre and comedy over a 3-week duration in August.

Another great attraction for Scottish tourism is the annual Edinburgh Hogmanay celebration. Originally an informal street party on the Tron Kirk in the Old Town’s High Street, it now covers 4 days of processions, concerts and fireworks, with the street party beginning on Hogmanay.

Edinburgh has 3 football teams that play in the Scottish Professional Football League: Heart of Midlothian, Hibernian and Edinburgh City. In women’s football, Hibs and Spartans play in the SWPL 1.

The most popular cars in Edinburgh

Given their multipurpose appeal as a family car and sensible commuter vehicle, it’s no great surprise to learn that the VW Golf is estimated to be the most popular car in Edinburgh, according to data provided between 2012 to 2018 by ownership and postcode.

Close on its heels—and in order of popularity—are the Volkswagen Tiguan, Land Rover Discovery Sport, Nissan Qashqai and the Ford Fiesta.

What does an air conditioning compressor do?

The AC compressor pumps and pressurises the refrigerant through the air conditioning system, feeding cold air into your car. The compressor is powered by your car’s engine.

How often should a compressor need replacing?

A well-maintained and properly serviced compressor could last as long as your car does. However, as with all vehicle components, they’re prone to wear and tear. Leakage and blockage can create irreparable damage.

The law, vehicle regulations and your MOT

A faulty air compressor won’t affect your car’s MOT, but it can affect the comfort of you and your passengers. It’s worth keeping your air conditioning running correctly as the impact it can have on your vehicle’s fuel efficiency could affect the day-to-day cost of your motoring.

What happens when we replace your AC compressor?

Our efficient and fully qualified mechanics will check for possible fault codes relating to your air conditioning that could lead them directly to a compressor fault.

The air conditioning system will be checked thoroughly, including electric and pressure components.

Wherever required your compressor will be replaced, and you’ll be advised of any other connected or associated problems arising from its malfunction. Important associated parts will also be removed and cleaned.

You will be advised of any other parts that may need to be replaced for the best operation and health of your vehicle. This includes replacement of refrigerant and possibly the orifice tube and receiver dryer.

Once the faulty compressor has been replaced, our mechanics will test it thoroughly to ensure the correct running of the new part and make any adjustments required for its premium operation.

What causes an AC compressor to stop working correctly?

Over time, the internal components of a compressor can wear or fail, including the seals that cannot be replaced independently. In other cases, the valves, pistons, bearings or clutch may need replacing, and it could be a cheaper option to replace the complete unit rather than each of the individual parts. Your compressor may have stopped working properly due to infiltration by dirt and debris, or from being affected by other faulty parts in the system.

Symptoms of a malfunctioning AC compressor

Your air con doesn’t work

If the air conditioning in your car doesn’t function as it normally would then it could be down to a faulty compressor.

There is no cool air

If your air vents aren’t producing cool air when your AC is operational, it could be your compressor that’s malfunctioning.

Your fuel consumption isn’t as good as normal

A malfunctioning compressor could also affect your fuel consumption, so if you notice that you’re not achieving your usual mpg, it could be time to have your compressor checked.

Unusual noises in the engine bay

If you hear a ticking noise coming from your engine, then this could be a sign that your compressor is damaged. The AC unit is damp If there are patches of fluid around the AC unit, this could also be a sign of a faulty compressor.
