Air conditioning query

Hi.

I have air conditioning on my 2013 b max. When I have the temperature on 15.0 degrees or lower it is cold, but as soon as I put it on 15.5 degrees and above it is very hot.

Is there a solution, or is it faulty?

Thanks

David.

if you leave it for a few minutes does it stabilize, or continue to get colder and colder/ hotter

It just stays hot and cold. I usually just turn the ac off and open the windows to be honest

Your car being 7 yrs old now, maybe a/c needs recharging ?

They do recommend a top up every 2 years, which if I'm honest seems a bit frequent. But even if it has been done once in the 7, it could do with checking at least.

Don't pay Ford to do it either. An independent will do it for half price.
