156 Aircon advice needed please
The story so far - bought an 03 JTS a few months ago, aircon didn't work so had it charged at Kwik Fit, started working, then next day didn't work. Then took it to a garage to find out where it was leaking. They charged it, put dye in etc. then a few days later I took it back and they told me it was the condenser and the two pipes going to the condenser that were leaking. Does this sound feasible that both condenser and pipes are knackered. Can get a condenser for £100 but the pipes are a astonishing price of around £150 from main dealer which would put the repair up to around £450. Are they available anywhere else? Can I go down the specialist breakers yard for aircon parts. Are there specific reasons not to use 'used parts' other than the obvious. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Do I need cold air that much!
