A/C Climate System Issues

Recommended Posts

Hi All, 

Hoping the brains trust can help me, yesterday we started the car back up and noticed some really weird behaviour with the AC/Climate System

1) Bass rumbling sound if I tried to use recirculated air. 
2) Fans were barely pushing any air flow through even with outside air (even if I turned off AC as well)
3) Outside Temp was registered about 9-10C higher than actual (but that did drop over time) 

We drove for another 20-30 mins and eventually we could get a bit more air flow and cold air via outside air - but instant we turned on recirculate - it dropped down and weird rumble sound begin. 

Tried again today - and still no luck (which considering summer heat just arrived... ) 

Car is a 2015 NX200t - have got my 60M service coming up - but the earliest they could book me in was EOM - so hoping to not to have to suffer without AC till then.

Thanks Ifv004s! 

I will give it a go - just found this youtube clip then that shows where it is and how to replace (for others if they encounter the same issue).

Will report back if this solves my issue.

@ilv1004s - you sir are a genius!

Turns out that my wife had a loose empty freezer bag which  had been sucked out of the glove box whilst closed and then into that cabin filter space (and inlet above it) - causing a dramatic loss in airflow. 

Using the instructions in the video to undo the glove box, boom saw it straight away, just yanked it out - (checked quality of filter but its still quite good) and boom we have air con again! Great news considering the next couple days forecasts!
