Hi all

It seems that my air conditioning kicks in after about 5-6 miles and before that the air is well.......not very cold, feels like when the heating system is just off.

Any ideas

Cheers

Depends how fast you are going for the 5-6 miles!!

Mine blows cold after a minute or two I suppose.

Try using the recirc button during those first few miles, see if it improves things.

Our 300TE had the same symptoms before the a/c performance began to tail off altogether - it needed regassing.

I will try the recycling and see.

About the pollen filter the car has had 4 services so far by Mercedes (cheapest type) and it is now 60.000 miles, I really don't know if the pollen filter has been changed or not.

All fixed.

Had the receiver dryer changed because of a faulty pressure switch and it works perfectly. Shame I am selling now though.
