My Gallardo's A/C is perfect to start with, but lately after a couple of hours on the road in hot weather, it fades and isn't cooling properly. Anyone had this?

I actually find the opposite.

The air coming out seems alot cooler then the temp set. I usually have to set it a degree or two higher then in my BMW.

Mine used to be like yours, but now it seems to have lost gas or something. I'll have the dealer look at it this week. It's getting hot here!

Air-con! I live in England, don't rub your fantastic weather in my face like that ;)

Seriously though, my system seems to work fine. I like the car to be pretty cold inside (i know using air-con effects performance) so my system is always on. If anything, as said above, it runs colder than my other cars.

The Murcielago is currently driving in 40 degree C weather without any problems. I find the small cab compared to the sedan wagons means that the car is cold fast. THe fans really whir on auto mode though. I have permanent bat wing up even at night driving such is the high ambient temperatures.

I reckon it must be a gas loss issue.

Take care with any "gas loss", which is normally shown up by any loss of "perceived" cooling by the air-con. Don't leave it too long before doing something about it.

Air Con systems have oil in the system that circulates with the gas. You loose gas - you loose lubricating oil that is needed by the compressor.

They had a go at fixing it but whatever they did, it isn't cutting it today - 38 degrees C ambient temp. Back to the workshop on Monday. :mad:

While they are at it, the sway bars are noisy again so this needs looking at. The "fix" didn't sound too convincing when the mechanic described it last time.....

loosing gas is not that dangerous, the air con has a security system.
If there is too less gas pressure it simply doesn't start anymore.

To check the Air con the garages do a pressure check, if your car has too less pressure they should fill in a fluorescent liquid when refilling.
Then you can find out the leak with a blacklight lamp.

I did this all on my countach, normally the connections are leaking.

well, i guess i don't feel so bad hooning by you at the sussex in the bug on saturday :wave: thinking the best thing about the g-car right now was that it has climate control. i didn't want to go below 40k's for fear of being toasted.
