Aircon shrader valve leak

Post by Marcdlew » Sun Apr 18, 2021 3:16 pm

Hi. New member. Have a 2016 Pulsar from new. Aside from niggles fixed under the warranty, the car has been mechanically sound. Build quality is iffy in some areas though.
Currently I have an issue with the aircon. It was regassed a week ago with ATS but ran out in a day. Was diagnosed as a leak in the shrader valve which is used as the fill up entry point for regas.
Compressor was working when regassed initially so I know that was good. Compressor was changed under the warranty within the first year.
So my question is, how do I get the shrader valves changed? All the small local garages won't do it as they don't have the expensive gas machines to flush and fill, even though the system is empty of gas. I live in South Wales. I've seen the process of the valves replaced on YouTube, and it's a simple job with the right tools and valves.

Got the same issue as yours on my 2015 diesel pulsar. Nissan garage propose me a 600 euro job that includes changing the high pressure line (where the valve are leaking), re-gas and a 2 hours work. It's a new gas, quite expensive as i told. 250 euro only for it.
If i see from the dye, the leak comes from bottom of the valve, so quite impossible to be fixed.
Good luck.
