Recommended Posts

Hello to all,  My Civic mk9 2.2 idtec condenser is leaking and my local Honda garage was going to charge me £700 to replace which i think is asking too much.

Just thinking how easy to replace it myself, just needs re gassing afterwards, i have basic mechanical skills but never had to do this sort of work. any reply's will be very grateful.

I got a local garage to do it all in including a regas for £240 and that was by far the best price I got quoted so £700 sounds like a awful lot of money but then again it's main dealer so you'll always pay more and bare in mind they use genuine honda parts with 12 months manufacturers warranty.

Many thanks for your reply, I think i will have to bite the bullet on this one, as where i live which is very rural, a stones throw from Lands End, my local garage don't have air con facility's.   So Honda it is, i did contact Honda again to see if they can reduce the price, and they can offer a non genuine condenser for the sum of £500. so, its a little better.  So its booked in on the 30th Sept.

good morning b4u2, sorry for a late response.

 Yes i had it fixed, at the price stated, so nice and cold now, not that i need cold air blowing through at the moment when the temp outside is cold, but it certainly helps and preventing demisting the windows , so thumbs up, also at the Honda garage (Rowes Honda Hayle)  they did a full health check of the car and flag up a couple of issues, not serious, and no pressure to get it fixed by them, Handy i managed to fix it myself, it was the drop links on the front which was getting a bit worn.
