Ive got a Mk1 Ford focus 2.0 litre, Ive had it almost a year now and its running fine, all but the air con, its noisy as hell, ive put it off all this time but i think im just about motivated to do something about it now.
When starting the car all is fine, as soon as i turn the dial all is quiet for about 3 seconds, then the air con fan kicks in and what sounds to go straight to 100% power to work, there is no difference in sound from the fans on settings 1-4 there all as loud as each other, and they are LOUD!! like head turning "what is that industrial sounding hoover noise?" loud!!!.
Ive worked in Air Con before and i know that if filters get blocked or there is low gas due to leaks they tend to work extra hard to get the same performance. I think (tell me if im wrong please) that my air con needs recharging and/or a new filter fitted, so my questions are as followed:
1: Is this a problem? are all ford focuses RIDICULOUSLY loud?
2: Where can i find the Air Con air filter, not the regular air filter? i.e. pic or guide? (ive searched can find anything on google)
Thanks in advanced!
