The aircon on the car doesn't work insofar as I don't get any cold air through it. The fans blow but it isn't cold, cold if you see what I mean.The windows tend to get misty too and hard to clear. I have had the gas checked and replaced so it isn't that, is there anything else that commonly goes wrong with the system?

Yes, there is a pin/valve (I'll need to find the details from when i had it repaired), that needs to be replaced. I believe it corrodes.
Anyhow, it stops the system from working correctly and once i has been replaced, you'll have nice cold air.

Surrey Jag Centre fix it for me. Let me see if i can find some info on it (old invoice is somewhere).
Although this was on my XFR, I'm guessing it's a very similar, if the not the same, system.

Did it work immediately after the gas was replaced?

Nope, it did a week or so after but then stopped working again.
