I bought a 55 plate Mk2 Focus 2.0 TDCi Ghia in October last year.

 

I went to a local place in St Helens to see about getting the air conditioning re-gassed and it didn't appear to be working.

 

At first it was though to be a leak in one of the pipes, so I ordered as new pipe part from a Ford garage for this place to fit it. I got the part and went back to the place. When I returned, I was informed it was not the pipe leaking but the condenser had failed.

 

I endured the hot summer without air con (not a pleasant experience I have to say!).

 

I'm now thinking where I can take it for a new condenser to be fitted, without having to go the a Ford garage.

 

Does anyone know of anywhere independent in the St Helens area or within a few miles of St Helens that can help here?

Are they still cheaper than going to a Ford garage though?

 

I enquired at a local Ford garage and was quoted just over £400 (including VAT) for fitting the condenser and regassing.

You'll pay less than that at an independent garage.
I'd ring a couple for wuotes.
Another benefit of independents is they will often fit self sourced parts, Ford won't.
