Well today we figured why my aircon hasn't been working, and only for few hours after a regas; the condensor is leaking pretty bad. He said to fit and replace the condensor would cost $490 , which involves removing the front bumper etc. It sounded like a reasonable amount to me, is this a good/bad price ??? Where would you guys recommend in northern suburbs melbourne ???
Try somewhere like coventry's or Lovelocks which supply jayair brand a/c gear which is what the factory use anyway..There are other automotive a/c suppliers too which will prob be less expensive than ford.
Thanks cogo for that, I will take up your advice. How much would the o rings cost ?
The manual I bought ''max ellery's'' actually said to do the same thing, I didn't think it was so important but ill replace them also...
I think not doing those o-rings would probably be one of those "$2 saving, that will bite you for $200 later" things
Unless they are some especially weird rubber or something, o-rings are usually like 30-50c each...
We've got a kit at work with all the different size O-rings I dont know if they are different to normal o-rings but the majority of air condintioner 0-rings are green or purple, you might be able to get them from the place that you buy the condensor from.
