    New Condenser?

    Hi, the air con on my car doesn't work, hasn't for ages, I think the condenser has broken because the switch doesn't kick in when you turn it on. (correct me if I'm wrong) Anyway... seen a condenser on fleabay for 60 would this make it work again??

    Thanks for any replies

    Not sure why you've gone straight for the condensor. The condensor is just a cooling matrix and any problems with it would pretty much be it leaking, a blockage or the fan not working.

    You should check the fuses before doing anything mate.

    Yes I have since realised that its probably not that at all. Maybe the compressor? As i cant hear the switch kicking in i don't think. I've not had it gassed as i thought the econ light stayed on if it needed gassing?? Should i have it gassed first to make sure?
