    Default Air Con condenser broke

    Hi All,

    Took the vectra SRI 1.9CDTI SRI 150 Into vauxhall today to get the air con regassed and came back that the Air con condenser was damaged and needs replacing. So is holding no air con.

    I understand that this sits in front of the radiator, so looks like would be best to remove front bumper to replace?

    Anyone got a guide how to replace the condenser?

    Or know if it is a big job?

    cheers

    I have found a how2 guide: http://www.vectra-c.com/forum/showth...84#post1277584

    But it says to make sure i remove the refriddgerant before replacing condenser. any ideas where this is and if its hard to remove?

    Also does my car have a dryer attached to the condenser? ta

    If the condenser is holed, the refrigerant will be gone anyway.. I did the how2 on a 2008 1.9 SRi CDTI150XP, if that helps. The dryer was not attached to the condenser on mine.

    Hi Guys, still need a condenser for my vectra. Spotted one on Ebay brand new for £78: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/VAUXHALL-V...item415c093f67
    Then spotted another one for £125 that says its a genuine VALEO: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/VECTRA-SIG...item53e87d7c67.

    The £78 doesnt seem to say what make it is. Do you think i should get the VALEO one or the chaeper one?
