I use this guy, he only charged me about $80 for an R134a regass whereas many others wanted $200+

NORWEST AUTO ELECTRICAL
Unit 1/ 64 Drummond St Windsor 2756
(02) 4577 3571

Good bloke too, I had a problem with my pressure switch and rocked up to him with a new pressure switch from an ST205 cut which looked identical.
He degassed the thing, we unscrewed the pressure switch and then realised the thread was a bit bigger on the ST205 unit.
Because we couldn't replace the pressure switch he whacked the old pressure switch back in and regassed the aircon.

I asked him how much for the degass / regass and he said no charge this even though it was mostly my f'ck up.

OKay guys, the deal is that i have a major leak in the aircon system somewhere, i'll need to get this sealed up and regas, but i really dont trust the workshops around my area.

If i give em the car, they said they need to take it overnight... and because of the mechanic's age, i suspect that he will take my car for a spin, and i dont want that.

Can someone refer me to a honest and trustworthy place where they can Fix the leak and regas my aircon knowing that the mechanic wont take my car overnight and out for a spin?

I'd prefer it somewhere in sydney

Cheers,
Chopin

PS: How long does the whole process take? to find the leak, replace the part/hose and regas?

I really dont want mechanics to take her for a spin... i'd rather cook dry in the sun all summer than letting some fag ruin my pride and joy.

It really should take them that long to find the leak, last time I got me aircon regassed they also added a dye so that you could see exactly where the leak was, let the aircon run for abit and then the leak reveals itself, too easy Smile

I got mine done at Hornsby Auto Electrical Services, 77 Hunter St, Hornsby, 94771893. They did a nice job back when I had my MR2, seem honest blokes don't see them thrashing your car at night...
