    Default Air Con Condensor

    Got to have mine replaced, tiny hole, but a hole none the less!

    Does anyone know if the condensor for a CDTi 120 has the drier attached or not?

    Searched everywhere and cant find a definitive answer!

    Thanks in advance!

    Why not repair it as it's only a mini radiator so it can be soldered if your unable to do this a radiator specialist can and save you a few quid.

    Cant really afford to have the front of the car off for long, although didnt even realise it was an option!

    The actual units arent much and the lad who is doing it is very good and charging minimum labour.

    Plus were about to drive to france so I dont want it going pop...

    When you say "drier" I take it you mean the fan.

    Normally when you buy a new replacement Air Con condenser, it is just that. Just the condenser, you have to swap the cooling fan over from your old one.

    I've done a few (not on a Vectra tho)

    Its like a metal cylinder with what has been described as a big lump of silics gel in.

    Without drier - http://www.autoairconparts.co.uk/Car...-16-6514A.html

    With drier - http://www.autoairconparts.co.uk/Car...t-16-6514.html

    And sadly I cant see in to check it (and the part number on the label doesnt match with anything!!)

    It's made from monkey metal. Plus it's aluminium, so it'll need tig welding, but as it's so thin, you'll probably just blow more holes in it.

    Also, as the system is under high pressure, I doubt you'd get a proper seal.

    Soldering went out the window when they stopped making radiators out of copper.

    Apologies Iain, of course the drier. When I replaced the Air Con condenser on my Astra, I had to swap everything over including the fan and drier.
