2018 Fendt 716 profi + Aircon problem

Is it just mine or do other Fendt owners of the newer type cabs have problems with Aircon. My old 2008 718 worked fine, nice and cold. But this new one just doesn't seem get cold. If temps over 20 outside I'm sweating inside. It's at dealer at moment for a check over but they can't seem find a problem but now told me newer cabs arnt as good. So why pay £120k for a tractor with rubbish Aircon. Even worse with newer cabs only having 1 door and no side windows. Just wondering if anyone else having trouble.

There is definitely problem there, maybe the heating matrix is not turning completely off therefore allowing heat to be pumped in. I rarely have to go to no 2 on the knob to keep it cool.
One other thing, is it climate control? could be a dodgy sensor

They said it's clicking in and out so guess that is the matrix? It does get a little cold but not comfy as you expect. Just stuffy if it's a warm day. They done all tests but said could need re gassing but thought that be first thing check!

Do they have a blind to cover part of the front glass. As had a MF 5455 years ago with a small glass hatch (high vis roof) and the blind would be far better at cooling than going up by 1 or 2 fan speeds when really hot
 
Well been pick tractor up and they say nothing really wrong with it as they tested it against another fendt and the other one was 0.5 deg cooler and they just blaming it on the extra glass cab and new style cab not as good as the older ones. My older one was fine, nice and cool, this just gets humid when its warm outside. They said if still feel it bad in a weeks time let them no so will do more tests. I can see it going back but it should be under warranty as its not been good since new.

Buy a set of these, so to cause no damage. Clinch the heater hoses going into the cab and run for a day to see if it's any cooler, if it is, ask them to fit a pair of easy to access shut off taps to the heater matrix lines. (y)

Yes the new cabs don't have blowers on roof and think that why doesn't get as cold as old girl was fine.
