Mini Countryman ALL4 Cooper S- 2010 Model, 82,000km

The air conditioning won't work - I am hoping it is simply a re-gas required, but has this happened to anyone?

I could hear some weird low level gurgling/whining noises coming from the system, but it was intermittent. The blowers were blowing, the green lights were on (the AC Panel lights) but just warm air coming out of the vents.... Damn hot here in the Czech Republic at the moment, had to drive with the windows down....

My air conditioner also does not work, unfortunately, I can not do without the help of a specialist. So, I have some problems with the noise from my air conditioner. It's very difficult for me to drive because of this and I can't bear the noise during the day. It irritates me. So, it turned out that I had to call the air conditioner repairing service because I got really nervous about it. It is supposed to work without much noise. And so the guys from the service (you can see it here socool.sg) cleaned the filters and the fan of my A/C, and finally, my air conditioner started to work like new.

My air con sometimes blows hot air out when the car isn't moving but works fine when the car is running. It has been bugging me so much but I thought it was a small issue until one day in summer it did not blow cool air even when the engine was running. I stay in Las Vegas so it was really hot that summer around 40 degrees out. I went to an air con service shop lkbrothers.com where they helped replaced my air con fans and refrigerant within a day. They were really helpful and kind and said that it was a small issue to be fixed. I highly recommend going to them or maybe you could bring your car back to the mini cooper service centre.

Yes, this is quite a common issue. I myself and my friends have encountered this before with various brands of cars from toyota to subaru and even to my own mini cooper. Sometimes it may just be a small problem where there is something wrong with the wire connecting from the AC generator to the air con or it could be a bigger problem where the refrigerant is totally spoilt. I went to subcool.sg for help and they were really friendly and kind to help give me a reasonable price to change my entire air con system. You should check them out.
