Hi,

I have a 2007 Citroen C3 Cool 1.4 HDI

I’m experiencing a rather weird issue, I haven’t seen brought up on the forum after weeks of searching.

I’ve recently had my aircon serviced and regassed with no issue

However I only get AC via the left two passenger vents
This is the manual A/C not the dual climate/automatic, So I don’t think the flaps are an issue and the standard heater functions normally at all temperatures and settings

Any help on this would be appreciated
Many thanks :D

Hi


I have seen this before and it was due to a system with insufficient pressure in the A/C circuit.

It should go back or to someone who can check the system for leaks properly.

If it was low before the regas, was the fault (leak) repaired or just ignored?

The A/C was completely empty when I had it serviced but I was assured the system was perfectly fine.
I assumed the previous owners just didn't bother with it (Purchased in January).

Thanks for the advice, I'll get it to someone who will properly check for faults! :)
