    A wreckers? There s few X7's on gumtree for parts. Get a secondhand one flushed & pressure tested before use. Otherwise visit a radiator or ac specialist. They might have a generic condenser available that could fit.

    Look up Dr Google or ebay using the Citroen part number and see what comes up.

    Cheers, Ken

    It's only a condenser. Your local A/C place should be able to sort out something that'll fit from there catalogues.

    Remembering that the condensor has the drier attached to the side.

    I had the condensor replaced on mine a few years ago (2012?) as it had developed the dreaded four pin holes. Cost then roughly $1,000 fitted and gassed. So far so good...

    Hi Guys,

    Shane is right, but if not locally, they should be readily available from the UK and fairly cheap, so, even if the freight gets a bit expensive, your better off than a factory unit.

    I can do better than the dealer, but not much ($100.00. The factory unit does come with the receiver drier, but you can get them on ebay very cheap.

    So go aftermarket!

    If you give me that last 8 numbers of your Vin, I can give you the correct part no so that will help you find the correct condenser.

    Best regards,

    Greg

    Have you considered finding the leak and having an aircon tech seal with aluminium solder?

    Pin prick holes in condensers can be symptomatic of "wet systems", ie a level of moisture inside the system that overwhelmed the dryer.
    And the refrigerant has turned acidic.

    I would replace the dryer and compressor oil and put the system on a vacuum pump for 3/4 of day minimum. This should "boil off" any
    residual moisture.

    Aluminium solder repairs to condensers and evaporators are a reliable fix for leaks.

    It just depends if the site of the leak is able to be readily accessed and the skill of person solderinging.
