I recently went on a trip up to Coffs Harbor from Melbourne and had the aircon working sweet the whole time. I've got back and all the sudden it doesn't work anymore!

I had a look and it has gas in it and when I press the aircon button it starts spinning the aircon rotor on the belt. I also felt the gas pipe leading into the firewall and it is freezing cold.

Anyone had anything similar happen?

When I press the aircon button it lights up but there's no difference in temperature between the aircon and having the heater set to cold.

can u hear or feel the clutch engage on the compressor. (when u push the button on the dash the revs drop slightly and then pop back up) or hear a loud click/clunky sound? if not this may mean your aircon needs to be regassed
