When i turn my AC on, sometimes it will go cold after 5-10 mins, sometimes it just stays as warm air.Any ideas what could be wrong and is it a dealer job?

Its a 1.6 Petrol Ceed GS 58 plate :)

Sounds like it needs recharging - fairly common after a few years.

Go to an air con specialist and they'll be able to check it for you.
My local guy charges £45 for a recharge and Kwikfit are £50.

My old honda needed doing every other year!

ask your dealer to match the kwikfit offer price as least that way you maintain the air con pump warranty

Regassing is only covered for 24 months from new. The exception is if the gas is replenished as part of a warranty repair, guess that would mean a new compressor or other component, then its covered for the full 7 years.
Midy29, yours mustbe just about3 years old since its a 58 plate thus you have been very lucky.
