    I keep loosing air con 2-3 days after system being charged, ive had the
    seals in the compressor changed,seals in the condensor changed,had the
    system charged with dye thats visible with UV light but cant find a leak,
    there is obviously a leak but where, has anyone else suffered this problem
    and what is the cure.thanks in anticipation.

    With leakage at that rate, you should be able to hear the gas rushing
    out! I had a hole in a hose and could hear it for 2 days. I can't
    believe they can't find any dye - have a look yourself - I did and
    found a large pool of luminous green stuff below where the hole was.
    There's no way they shouldn't be able to spot it. Check the bottom of
    the condenser in case that has a hole and the dye has dripped down.
    Consider going to serck marston if all else fails - they specialise in
    air con.

    Ive had the system recharged + dye again and still cant find the leak,the
    longest its lasted is 4 days, the shortest is 1day, changing the seals in
    the compressor pointed to that being the problem at first as that altered
    the time it lasted and certainly again when the seals were replaced again,
    but theres no sign of the dye and no sound of a leak.The air con
    specialist whose doing the job is nearly as upset as i am.Any ideas.

    Ouch - I got £220 from Serck Marston. Sorry, you didn't want to know that ;-)

    Glad you got it sorted though.
