Alfa 147 1.9 JTD

Alfa 147 aircon replacement pipes

Anyone know if Alfa changed the construction of the high pressure pipe out of the 147 aircon compressor from rigid to flexible after 2005?

The reason I ask is that my 1.9 JTD had a rigid pipe that got a hole worn in it by rubbing against another part of the engine.

My garage tried to replace this part but could only get hold of a pipe with a flexible middle section. They have fitted this (to stop moisture ingress) but don't want to gas the system in case the flexible section splits under pressure.

This wonderful British summer has been delightful (not) without aircon as you can imagine...
