Unsuccessful courtesy A/C repair, Freon leaked out again over the weekend. Courtesy repair of A/C. A rubber grommet on the high-line side apparently had a crack in it from the factory. They replaced the grommet and thought it would fix the problem.

Still in the Dealership Repair Shop for a continuing saga of air conditioning problems. It will not hold a Freon charge. They've replaced a couple more grommets. I suspect it is the Evaporator. Friday,04-11-15, Picked up the car from Sport Durst Mazda. Mileage is 45931. Replaced 2 "o" rings going into Evaporator Unit. Dealership says the problem has been corrected this time. Did not charge me for repairs.
