Hi all

Quick one, I pulled up the other day at a friends house and noticed "liquid" drooling from underneath about one third the way back beneath my Juke. Now, I am presuming that this is from the air conditioning, which I now run on auto all the time. The fluid (which I tasted and sniffed!) appears to be plain water. It's coming from a small round rubber hole, is this normal?

Thanks guys!

So, with continual AC use, how long will it last until it needs serviced / topped up?

Thanx

I dont think its the fluid from the system its the moisture in the air being drawn out
All aircon systems require maintainance during their life I would not like to suggest when but if it doesnt work it probably wants a re gas .

I was advised that it would getSERVICE at every dealer service - I was also advised to use it at least oncea week otherwise the filter would need replaced more often and a fusty smell would appear in the cabin if it wasnt regularly used

i dont know the technical terms but unless it is used regularly- it'll need servicing more often

Don't know if once a week is necessary but switch it on occasionally to keep it working efficiently.

Apparantly if you get that fusty smell with the aircon, it can be a sign that there is some sort of bacteria in the system... Sounds gross .. i know

When we lived in the States we used to recharge our own about everycoupleof years...you can do it youselfby adding refrigerant (20 minute job in the Florida heat) or can just take it to somewhere like Kwik Fit who I think charge around £50 for an A/C recharge -

My mate had this done to his car, to get the guy back he filled his air vents with talc. Even 3 years later every time the guy went over a bump talc would still blow out haha
