    Default Aircon Condensor

    Hi
    I've got a 2006 1.8 petrol Vectra that the air con hasn't worked on for some time. Hoped it just needed a recharge so took it to the stealers today (as they agreed to do it for £49), anyway after three hours waiting they said the condensor was holed. The total bill would be £439 + £50 diagnostics.

    After looking at some other threads I found this http://www.autoairconparts.co.uk/Car...-16-1240A.html and a garage that would fit it for £60 (have to get a Kwik Fit charge at £49 as well) but thats still nearly £250 cheaper !!

    I'm not being a bit daft am I? Nothing I've missed?

    £60 for fitting is a good price but not unusually cheap. I got quoted £90 to fit and £45 for the fill if I provided the condenser. Decided to do it myself and save £90.

    Don't forget any seals you may need. I spoke to the dealer and they reckon I only need one as the dryer was part of the condenser (and it looks like yours does to).
