A/C maintenance

My owner's manual says nothing about A/C maintenace, however my dealer's manual says to have one done about every 24000 km. What do you think the dealer does for A/C maintenance? Is it really worth it (by that I mean will it keep me out of potential problems, cause it's working fine now)?

I'm going for my 48000 km maintenance on Tuesday, should I have this A/C maintenance done?

What do km's equal to miles?? By a/c maint... I'd say that the ycheck the refrig. check the ducts, the lines. And that's all that I can think of. Call them up and ask.

everytime you change the oil you should look at all the lines and make sure nothing is rubbing, and there are no oilly spots.

other than that run the system 15 min a week...even in the winter, and dont worry about it unless it gets warmer or a smell developes

Sounds like a dealer trying in increase profits. Must be a 5 star dealer. Dealers are having a touch time these days. Profits are down. On of our local dealers walked away from his dealership last week. He owned 40% and DC owned 60%. He said with the lower sales, tight magins and DC paying lower rates for service he lost money for the last 2 years. He tied to sell his part and couldn't find a buyer.
