A/C can blow cold for the near side passenger but the offside driver only gets warm air on the Citroen C3.

The cause of this is low pressure (of refrigerant) in the air conditioning system. It needs topping up, but should not have leaked, so getting it checked professional is very important.

You can book your C3 into a slot at a local F1 autocentre (here) for a test of the a/c system and a top-up if necessary to restore the cold to both the front seat passenger and the driver :D
