How are the 260s holding out with their AC in this weather we are having just now?
No, there have been no changes in performance. Basically the 260 A/C unit is a badly hacked unit. Fact is it will never work as good as the original; now I'm not saying some people wont find it acceptable, I am just saying it will not perform correctly.Are the 04 different in terms of the air con then?
I would recommend you see the failed part. When the original car was developed, there were loads of problems with packaging space for the A/C pipes - finally additional clamps were added to avoid damage to the A/C Hoses due to rubbing with various moving parts. Now I dont know the engine bay of the 260 at all, however I can imagine that there ain't much space in there.MG assistance did their thing and the car is now back with the dealers. AA thought it was the steering fluid reservoir that ruptured but according to the dealers it was a burst pipe from the air con...
Wont go into the detail, however I would imagine the airmix doors aren't fully closed and warm air is leaking through. This is a problem for all airmix type A/C units, however usually can be compensated by the Control Panel software. If the A/C Panel software hasn't been changed for the 260, then maybe the higher engine temps are causing this problem.goosemini said:Is this a problem? - When the car's warmed up, and the aircon is not on at all, there's a bit of warm/hot air coming out of the vents. I've never had a car with aircon before, so don't know if it's a regular thing!
