    2012 WRX A/C not working :(

    Hey guys I just turned on my AC today after a couple days of not using it. To my surprise there was no cold air coming out. I ran it for a while and even tried to drive to see if it would change and nothing. If I put the heater on, it works fine and gets hot. It's only the cool that won't work, it just feels like a fan blowing.

    I'm going to drop off the car at the dealership tonight after I flash it back to stock. Anything I should check myself before taking it to the dealer in the case it was an easy fix? I was thinking maybe a fuse? Ideas?

    Yeah I am taking it later tonight after I get out of work but now my brain is going all crazy thinking what it could possibly be. It only has 1000 miles so now I'm thinking about it being a lemon. I just need to tell my brain to relax I guess.

    One quick question. Do you guys here a loud clicking sound coming from under the glove box everything you turn the AC on and off? I just noticed that and am thinking it could be related to something there.

    clicking noises are never natural. The AC turning on could be causing enough of a vibration maybe to giggle something? Or it is associated with your AC not working. Like fallen said that's what warranties are for, god bless them.

    That's random.

    Well, glad that you're getting it all sorted.

    Well not yet. They gave me my car back yesterday after filling the freon back up. They said it could have been low from factory(not the case) or have a leak. They could not find the leak so they put some dye in with the freon, that way they could put a black light if it were leaking to find it.

    So I got my car back and thought that it would be a few weeks until it leaked out again an would have to take it back. To my surprise, by the end of last night it had all leaked out again and my car not blowing cold air again. So now I'm gonna drop it off today and they are getting me setup with a rental till they fix it. So frustrating. I think the leak is inside the car cause I could hear this hissing noise coming from the air vents when they were off. It also smelled funky and would blow out this white air initially when turning it on. So let's see what happens and I'll let you know how this turns out.
