    Hi chaps and chapesses,
    In S France at the moment, temperatures are......indecently high and air con packs up (serviced 3 weeks ago) My guess the compressor and I'm out of extended warranty. Anyone give me a ball park about how much these things might cost??

    If it's just the clutch set and coil about £500, but if it needs the compressor it will be around another £1000.

    As my CR-V will be three years old shortly, I've been considering the extended warranty.

    Is this a common (ish) fault @Pottermus @Beefy ?

    On balance, what are your thoughts on getting the 2 year Honda warranty extension?

    Worth checking the relay - my air con wasn't working, turned out to be the relay ... an easy £30 fix.

    It is intermittent, you tube video shows how easy to replace rather than test the relay and so new Honda replacement ordered....fingers crossed!
