My 3-month-old RS Climate control decided to stop blowing cold air last week, every thing else works ie fans, climate controls etc, but no cold air!
I was not too worried at first as it’s under warranty, but when I dropped it off at my local dealer in Kent, the service guy at the desk commented that this is not the first RS with an aircon issue and it’s looking like a trend, maybe a recall for this issue?.
There was another RS also in their work shop for a new engine due to an air con fault!
Anyway, my car has been there a week now and not even an update! I will call them tomorrow to see what they have to say.
That does not sound very good if there is another faulty part like the first engines…but all good with warranty but sucks for the timeloss for each customer.
For myself I never drive with climate control except maybe when its over 36 degrees outside and I have to driver more than 1 hour. When I picked my car up in February 2017, I turned off AC and just turned it on last week once to check if it still works 😀
Ford Focus RS / frozen white / fifteen52 tarmac / lowering springs kw / milltek exhaust / exhaust valve deleter / K&N airfilter / Maxton rear upper spoiler / Mishimoto oil cooler / Auto specialist 40% short shifter /
Air con update, Ford eventually replaced the AC compressor in September under warranty which is great, all working fine. But now, 1000 miles later its packed up again! ( I think this time it’s due the outside temperature sensor being faulty, it is permanently fixed at Zero C or -18f! and the ‘ice warning’ light it lit, apparantly the AC won’t come on when the car thinks its too cold.
Booked in again next week!
Should I have bought a merc amg a45? I suppose you get what you pay for!
I do highly recommend the Dreamscience Stratagem imap, I don’t know if it actually makes much more power as I’ve not dynoed the car, but the Mapping of the POWER DELIVERY is spot on! Can’t wait to compare it at Brands soon!
