Anyone had a problem with their air con? Mine has packed in and the car was booked in for its 20k service in a corona proof service centre and the dealership alerted to the issue in advance. As usual on the first visit, it couldn’t be fixed and they want it back next week for a couple of days so an electric vehicle technician can look at it. They said “the pipe was heating up and the pump was making a strange noise” but they needed the electric specialist to have a proper look at it and he wasn’t due back off furlough until next week. I had noticed a slight fluttering noise before I realised it had stopped producing hot air and I remember my old Honda CRV used to make the same noise before the compressor imploded.

Mine stopped working last year (no coolimg / no heating) . Blown fuse which they replaced. But they haven't found what caused fuse to blow.

I had about 29000 km in the odometer this spring when I noticed that the AC was blowing warm air, had a mechanic take a look and did the 30k maintenance check at the same time, verdict was that the refrigerant had either leaked or the system was undercharged from the beginning but there was 7g of refrigerant left in the loop when 1kg was expected. They did a pressure / leak test and found no leaks so recharged the system and told me to bring it back if the problem crops up again.
