i can confirm that my 05 exige air-con does not make any difference to the incoming air temp.
Has anybody come up with a fix or had it regased ?

A common fault on the early 'yota cars is that the pipes corrode just inside the sill aft of the front wheel arch. It can be fixed with an upgraded (rubber coated i think) replacement from Lotus. Expect to pay circa �600 at a dealer.

Have some tracer dye put though first to confirm.

How easy is it to remove air con system?

I didn't think it was fantastic over summer, made a slight difference to cabin temp but not enough to justify carrying the extra weight or burning the extra fuel.

Tal

There's summat up with your system - it should be very effective.

Why are you worrying about weight savings, when you don't even track it, or know what it/you can do as it is? I won't mention tyres........ ;)
