The a/c on my 855 is not blowing as cold as it should be, although it is "cool". It also seems to be switching on and off quite a lot at a short interval, which can be heard only with the radio off but can also be "seen" by the fluctuation on my turbo gauge.<p>I'm going to mention it when I take it in for service next week, but wanted to see if anyone had any ideas of what these symptoms indicate. I know it's only a matter of time before the a/c condensor goes in these cars, but I'm not sure if that's what this is since i'm still getting cooler air than i do with a/c off.

Re: Air Conditioner question (855turbo95)

The evap IS probably starting to go.<br>You can clean out the system and recharge. This may hold for over a year, (or more) one never knows. The compressor clicking on and off is what I described, low freon.<br>I did the same thing to my 850R, (as described above), I bought in Jan. and it's still going strong <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0"> You neglected to say how many miles on your car
