Mine dosnt make a noise but I have noticed that if on 18 it can sometimes be very cold but other times it seems a bit warmer regardless. Note this is without using the auto.

Hmmm?

Mine is cold on 18 but boiling on anything else... I'm either freezing or hot!! :(

I'm taking the car to Dr Bell soon so I may ask him!

Sounds like it needs re-gassing, £60-80.

If you need to run at the lowest setting then you must check the by-pass valve, big hot cars have a valve to stop hot water entering the heater matrix and acting as a heat sink. If this is full of constantly recycling water (however slowly) then it will need a lot of chilling to overcome the heatsink.

that's pretty much what I thought - but it never hurts to get a second (or third or fourth) Opinion.

thanks guys

If it needs regassing any refrigeration/air con dition company can do it. If you spot a frineldy Toomeys van (or similar) around ask them if they'll do it for a few quid.
