I'm in the process of doing mine;
Remove undertray, O/S wheel arch liner, front bumper (no need to detach from N/S), headlights and then bonnet slam panel. Manoeuvre bumper away from O/S to gain access to condenser. Undo and remove cap head bolts securing hoses to condenser - caution, they maybe corroded and either round off or, worse still, shear off. Undo and remove 4 bolts securing condenser to radiator. Lift up and remove condenser. When refitting the replacement condenser, new O ring seals will require fitting to the hoses.
I wouldn't bother using a second hand condenser, if the bolts shear off or there is a pin hole in the matrix, it's a write off and you'll have to start again.
