Air con condenser replacement


Recommended Posts

Hi,

I have just bought a 2005 Mk 3 GS 300 and started a new owner thread.

It needs a new aircon condenser and have been quoted £290+VAT to have it fitted and the system serviced and re-gassed.

Does that sound reasonable?

Thanks,

Dan

If it was a genuine part then it would be excellent as the part alone is around £280. A third party unit can be found for around £70+, but most of the cost would be labour - probably 2 to 3 hours will the regas so the price doesn't seem too bad, maybe a little high.

Rockauto have condensers from £37 to £81 so maybe then 3 hours labour to take out and replace with new one then regas.

Labour       say 200

Condenser say 80

Regas         say 70

 

Total roughly 350  so your price is pretty good I would say.

Couple of things to check.

1.  You are getting a decent make of condenser.  I suspect the £290 figure is a pretty cheap condenser.

2.  Get them to replace any hoses, clips etc., anything that you can whilst the work is getting done.
