Well following vaux telling me I need a new condenser and they quoted me £400 ish, I finally bought the condenser myself to do a DIY job!
Couple of Q's tho before I do it.
I've read I need to get the gas discharged before undertaking the job. Is this vital?
Is it necessary to change the washers n studs and do I really need to have the system vacced out for an hour to get rid of any moisture?
When refitting the cond will hand tight pressure be enough to make a seal on the pipes?
Finally does anyone know of a reputable regasser in or around the Wigan area who won't charge the earth but will regas, pressure test and dye test when the new condenser is fitted?
