  1. Thanks The oil is no where near the unions. Instead it has been spreading from the bottom of the condenser. I am now 100% it is leaking and have decided to go DIY by removing the bumper - installing an OE part that I have sourced - and having it gassed and checked for other leaks.. Looks like it has been puncutured by something as the other condenser is mint...
  2. OBD II, Not sure how you have determined you have a bad condenser, but if you go to a generic AC shop they will usually put dye into your system and then use a ultravilolet lite to see where the dye has leaked out t odetermine which component or connection is "bad". In the P-car system, it logically is likely that one of the condensers has a leak as they are vunerable to road debris build-up that can cause some corrosion or possibly a rock damaging the condenser coil. If you already have gone thru the dye check routine to determine the leaky condenser, then you are well on your way to avoi

  4. Thanks. How is the dryer receiver accessed to be changed (where is it located). I only have one condensor leaking. Its not too bad either as it is only stained and the air con is working efficiently.
  5. Hi I need to change a leaking condenser. The air con is still working and so the leak is very minor. Would I usually need to change the evaporator as well and if so how do I do this? (I will DIY the condenser and get the system regassed)
  6. I am being offered a BEHR condenser for £118 or a Hella for £130 (inc vat). Just wondering if there are any manufacturer details on the aircon condensers that would confirm who the OE supplier was? Thanks
