My recent run of bad luck is continuing, so after splashing out on new tyres after a blow out, timing belt change (OK, that was planned maintenance), diagnostics and new glow plugs, EGR delete and new windscreen, my a/c has packed up and I have been told it needs a new condenser fitted as there is a leak.
The parts themselves don't come too expensive but the garage has quoted me 4 hours labour plus the cost a refilling the system. Total comes in at €450 which is about £320. Does that sound reasonable, especially the labour time? I am tempted to leave it but it does get very hot in the south of France where I spend a lot of time. My other car needs a new compressor which is even more expensive so I have to mae do with openning the windows on that one!
