The early GT's came with the incorrect amount of R134 from the factory.
Have the system evacuated and see how much was recovered. It could be over filled or under filled.Granturismo. I left the car out in the sun, it is 80 here in SW Florida, and it took THIRTY MINUTES of driving to get the air conditioning system to spew out cold air. Anyone able to tell me what is going on here? What am I doing wrong?
It only takes around 30 minutes to do the check. If they are always backed up like my dealer, it could take days. The two dealers by me don't do loaners. YMMV on this.and if it is a long time do Maserati provide a free loaner if the Granturismo is under warranty?
I think that this dealer dependent.and if it is a long time do Maserati provide a free loaner if the Granturismo is under warranty?
Make sure they replace the reciever dryer, orifice tube, and the belt. The reciever dryer and orifice tube catch all the debris that the compressor shoots out when it goes bad. I have seen this happen many times on the QP's. The A/C compressor should be something that the dealership should keep in stock. Especially since they go out all the time on the QP's. If you ask me I would keep your car just make sure that the A/C switch is turned off. I have seen 10 days turn in to a month.OK fellahs, here is an update. Drove 30 miles to the Naples Maserati dealer. They have one Maserati mechanic who actually works in the Porsche service department. I waited about 1.75 hours for them to tell me that the car needed a new Air Conditioning Compressor and they would have to order it from Italy and it could take 10 days to get one. They said I could leave the car there and they could RENT me a car (no loaner) or take my car away and bring it back when they get the part!
I WAS NOT IMPRESSED WITH THEM OR MASERATI!
