147 JtdM Aircon condensor
Does anyone know whether there are alternatives to the original part? New or used its all good. Is it the same part on all models of 147 and/or 156?
I've been quoted £180 for the part + 3Hours labour say £400 to replace and recharge my leaking part and sadly it isn't worth it with the other things I know need doing - Cam belt change, Injector Service, Wheel Refurb and probably some new bushes soon too. Well over a grand in total.
Getting the condensor down to about £200 might mean I can keep the car another year or so.
I've done 80K miles with 105K on the clock now and enjoyed them all, I could just leave the aircon not working but the weather is quite hot at present and it would be nice to have it available.
