In Topic: A/c Compressior. Replacement Or Second Hand?

Ok, I've got a mechanic friend to look at it. He says he can't see anything that would be of concern right now. He's gassed it all up with dye and told me to take it to see him again if it stops working. I heading up his way again next week so I am going to try and blast the A/C for this week in an effort to see where the dye goes.

The condencer has been replaced on it and the wiring has been refitted. They say the compressor has a leak- checked with UV dye. I think the time estimate involved bleeding and regassing the system too.

So I've got a friend who will be taking a look at the A/C for me. He thinks it is worth while checking for leaks or blockages in the pipes before ruling that the compressor needs replacing. Taking it in to see him on Sunday, see how accurate the guy was who I was dealing with before.

I repaired the broken pump wires that had been ripped of mine. The one in the pis is for a mk one. I have that for sale.

Hey guys, thanks for the advice.

I'm going to think this over this month before I get my next pay check to see if I can really make this affordable.

Thanks a lot for that link artscot79! That should bring some of the cost down. The guy says he could get the part for £215 but there is still the 2 hours labour to fit it.
