    i dont think this model has a replaceable filter
    all that needs to be done is, take out the glove box and wash the inlet grill of evaporator
    and this certainly does not cost thousands

    went to another AC mechaninc and he told that there is no or less AC gas in the car. its air pressure that is showing in the guage. he said for Gas he will charge Rs 2500 and for checking all the AC fitting for leakage they will charge Rs 2500. so the total he is charging is 5000 which is my opnion to much for that. Can anybody tell me about a reasonable kasai in Rawalpindi for this.

    One more thing that if the car AC is still cooling (not up to the mark) at night what does that mean? is some gas still there? is the Mechanic is correct in his saying?
