Just a quick one, my partners sport ka 2008 has a air con leak in it. found this the other day as green liquid was coming out. The leak is on the pipe that leaves the accumulator then goes to the condesor or motor. the leak was caused by the curved bracket holding the pipe in place this has now made a very small pin hole in pipe. I rang ford and they said it will cost £214 for the pipe . at the moment i have a piece a hose pipe around it with a jubilee clip so far so good. I dnt really wont to regas it as it may leak again as this is a temp fix.
Would it be possible to weld it closed the hole or just replace it with a second hand pipe and is it specific to what type of ka like couild i put 1.2 ltr pipe on this 1.6.
any help would do please
