    Hi all, I changed the condenser on my GT 2-3 months ago to an NRF make. Review is good and the price was competitive (mid range). The replacement was smooth, although slight persuation was necessary to align the mounting points with the car but it was...

    Has anyone fitted an after-market condenser and if so, does it work well? Half the fins have fallen out of mine, so I've bought an AVA condenser - they're NLA from Alfa. However, it's a more contemporary aluminium design with a narrower core depth (14mm) compared with the flattened "serpent"...

    Just a quick check with you guys about this - maybe save sometime from having to take bumper off and reinstall a failed item. I stripped out my radiator and condenser when I had to replace the leaking radiator. Condenser was a mushy mess and clearly not functioning, so I didn’t reinstall or...

    Hi all, Over the past 10 days I've been on a fruitless trek for a new condenser unit for my Phase II GTV 3.0 V6. The aftermarket partno that I'm after is 16-9734 which translates to OEM 60657491. The complete stock seems to have vanished as literally every vendor I've tried in The Netherlands...

    Hi All When to have the air con re-gassed yesterday and was advised that the condenser needs replacing. Unfortunately this is classed as wear & tear and not covered under warranty - there's a surprise. Anyone replaced this themselves and if so how easy is it - I'm quite good a car repairs so...

    Hey guys. I'm having a hard time getting the ac condenser pipes off. I was just wondering which of the 2 nuts on the 2 pipes should be taken off to get the ac free? My ratchet is just digging into the nut as I'm pulling for my life and I'm wondering what am I doing wrong. Same thing with my fuel...

    Can anyone confirm which radiator sits directly behind the front grill on the 2.5 V6 156? Is it the engine coolant radiator, or, as I suspect, the A/C condenser? As you can see from the attached picture, I have a leak in mine, causing clouds of steam to appear from under the bonnet, even with...

    Went online today to buy an aircon condenser for my wife's 04 147 16V 1.9JTD and was told there were two types listed for her reg number and that I'd have to measure it. Easy I thought - however - measure it? I couldn't even see it. Is there another way round this problem - I can't see (from...
