So I was driving at 5 miles an hour over some very shallow speed bumps and I heard what sounded like a piano string being plucked in the rear left hand side of the engine followed by some flapping. I stopped had a good look in all the wheels and couldn't find anything. I drove a bit further and the flapping noise stopped but the air conditioning stopped working. No warning lights no change in engine characteristics just the air con wasn't getting cold. Fearing a belt had snapped I called Porsche who advised me not to drive so got it recovered.
Porsche agree the aircon isn't working but cannot see anything wrong. All belts intact but point to a small stone dent on the front radiator which are of course exposed. They are saying that it may have lost gas through it. Just very concerned about the twang noise!
I fear my pants will be pulled down on this one!

Porsche agree the a/c isnt working but dont know why .. ok .

Porsche say theres a possible hole in the a/c condensor .. ok .

Porsche dont know why the a/c isnt working but think it might be because theres no gass ..

Perhaps ask them to connect an a/c machines and see if the gauges register a pressure ..

takes 2 mins .


Sigh ... might be better off takeing it to Halfords !

I couldn,t find an emote for pants down so instead used this one of you waiting for a sensible answer Smile

They have pressure tested it and there is damage to the rather exposed condenser which is leaking. So new rad at £760!! Ouch.

Sounds about the usual cost.
