Tintop air con advice

Advice please, my daughter has a mk6 fiesta with a damaged aircon radiator. If the aircon is kept off would there be any damage if it runs out of fluid? Just want to use the car for a few days until a new one can be got.

Won't be an issue short term. When the pressure sensor registers the pressure loss the system won't engage the pumps clutch and the pump won't run.

As above no pressure, no work but the longer itís left the more moisture gets in and the more corrosion you get.

I did my renault in the spring. New receiver, new drier. Removed all the pipe work and cleaned up the fittings and lubed the O rings with silicone grease. Down the garage for a re-gas.

It helps clear the windows at this time of year as well.

Always worth replacing the air-con filter too. Done it many times on various VAG cars - cheap and easy to do and makes the air-con work better (once repaired) as well. Filters are usually £5-10.
