Red face aircon problem

The receiver/drier or whatever its called with the little glass window on top in my C180 has developed a crack right in the middle. Now the aircon is not so cold. Can this be due to loss of gas from this crack in the glass? I have been told you cannot change the top portion and reuse the bottom cylinder. It seems that you have to change the whole thing and with labour and GST will cost A$330. How correct is this?

Yes, if the glass is cracked it certainly could be the source of the leak. It would be simple to confirm with a sniffer or UV dye.

Since you did not state the model or year, it's difficult to know if the cost is inline.

Good luck,
