156 Aircon parts
I've a leaking aircon system and on inspecting it have spotted where the leaks are coming from (there is dye in with the coolant which shows up the leaks).
There is a leak at the filling point and a leak on a hose.
My problem is that the filling point seems to be a pipe with a simple one-way filling valve a bit like the normal tyre air valve - in function at least - but my old parts CD shows that this is not replaceable and I have to buy the full part 60655406 or 60656032 (I'm not sure which on at the moment). The cost of this plus the fitting will be a lot higher that just replacing the filler valve, so does anyone with a bit more CD or garage experience know if its possible to just replace this bit?
The second bit is part 60657141. This is a hose with an odd metal bulge in it. I've no idea what the bulge is! The CD shows this as greyed out which is a bit of a concern as I'm definitely going to need one. Does anyone know why the CD will show this as greyed out and with no replacement?
Thanks for any help.
