Re: Aircon - V6
On mine the condenser got a big stone chip and being ally, corroded through. I got a new one for about £90.
If you have the oil still in the system and just need a gas refill, go to a plumbers store and get one of those cans that you put over the sink plug hole to unblock it. Look on the back and most of them are R134a which is the refridgerant used in the cars. Make up a adaptor to fit the valve and hey presto, a £2 gas refill.
Its got to be worth a try, but dont do it if your oil has leaked, and or there is a lot of moisture in the system.
The best quote I ever saw after a review of the 164 QV, was "From now on I am only going to buy cars powered by Alfa V6's"
Mmmmmm The noise, the noise...................
