[Resolved]  Skoda Laura — AC compressor not working

Since the date of purchase the AC barely gives the needed tempretaure.
i appraoched the service station, Torque, which was new @ that time and they took the vehicle to the already well equipped autorised station at baroda and after four days the vehicle was returned with a request that it would need more evaluation.
no response after that is there.
every quarter i renew my reqeust but no response is there. time is killed and warranty is expired. the reqeust is now heeded by saying you need to replace the compressor and as no warranty is there you have to pay. i asked for details of work carried out in baroda station while warranty was on but evasive replies are given saying the software is changed.. no old data is available..etc.
due to paucity of time and having trust on there word that they are trying to resolve my warranty expired. though they admit that all lauras have the problem with compressor still they are behaving in a manner which is causing tremendous harrasment.

I have had similar trouble with my A/C from day one(LAURA) - it just doesnt cool well and takes over 20-25 mins on a warm day to bring the interiors to a comfortable ambient temperature.There's also a terrible smell from the A/C for the first 1-2 mins as you switch it on. I have been complaining to TAFE and VINAYAKA, Bangalore over and over again about this; there have been no improvements. In fact, they dont acknowledge the problem..
I had the same problem. The local ac expert mended the old compressor and refitted it. It removed the oil in the system and cleaned it. He filled it with adequate gas, remember excessive gas in compressor is bad my prob. got sovled
i compleetly agree with this complaint, even i am facing many problems with my 8 months old skoda laura, my a.c is also not working properly workshop manager says a.c switch is not working properly they have orderd the switch and will come in a wek but from one month that week is not coming, major problem in laura is its horn that stop working after a week, i have changed the horns thrice but after a month one of the horn stops working, i will never purchase the skoda product again in my life.
AC is a problem in LAURA and skoda is not doing anything .

Paste it on the rear screen and believe me they will come to you till now we are visiting them.

I am going to do this from today.

I am also suffering due to manufacturing defect of poor cooling at 40 degrees in my new Laura which has done 16000 kms
We have bought laura 15 days back and since then AC takes half hour to cool .it is very frustrating having bought an expensive car with a problem like this
I have had a laura for about 3 years with absolutely similar problems. I just wrote an email to Sokda India a few days back and I am expecting a solution. If not then I would definitely be taking the legal course and file a case in the consumer court. I would srtongly suggest that everyone here write to them. I am sure they would need to listen if can gather enough momentum by pulling together.
Skoda will never respond to you as they realize that they can't fix the problem, so the best way out is to play dead. We are all stuck with this piece of Junk from east Europe.
Do you know what is the price of the Laura Ac compressor and blower unit - Its freaking Rs 1, 05, 000/- + taxes. Can some one tell me how this amount is justified when you can buy 4 or 5 split ac's for your home with that amount? The driver seat costs 1, 25, 000/-, the roof cardboard trim costs 19000/-. Airbags 2, 50, 000/-, Engine ECU 4, 50, 000/-. Which mad guy fixed the price tags on these parts???
