    Default WTB peugeot 505 a/c condenser

    Hi,

    I'm after a A/C condensor to suit a GTD. I'm having a heap of trouble locating one so does anyone know of one out there? The input and outputs are located on opposite ends unlike the petrol ones. I have a petrol one I was gonna try modify to fit but after investigation I think this is going to be a fair bit of mucking around and cost me so a diesel condenser would be desirable if possible. Any help would be awesome

    Thanks heaps
    Sam

    Gday Sam,

    I think I have one from an SRD somewhere, I assume they would be the same as a GTD? Do you have a picture of the one you need, I have a few condensers in the workshop here.

    Cheers

    Sam, just be aware that over the life of the 505 range, there were MANY different airconditioner arrangements. Hoses, connections and condensors changed virtually every few months.

    So when you find one, check also that the fittings are the same as your hoses, etc.

    I found that the easiest and probably cheapest way in the long run was to go to an airconditioning specialist and have it made up. Hoses and condensor cost me about $350, all vacuumed and gassed up with a new reciever dryer. Worked great until one of the existing solid lines fractured. I need to get that fixed sometime!

    Hey thanks Scotty! $350 including gas and new condenser! did they make up fitting brackets to make it fit? thats cheap. My local places charge $220 onwards just for a re-gas to a good system before even looking at fixing anything. I will have to look into air con specialists in melbourne.... know any good ones? - Also gotta give you a call sometime you may be able to help me get this car working lol

    Wow, $220 for a basic regas is outrageous. You shouldn't be paying more than $110, down to $70 or $80 if you find someone who's happy to take cash.

    It has been a few years since I had mine done, but from memory, the regas and vacuum was $80, dryer was $60, 4x pipes made and fitted @ $40 each, condenser was an ebay special @ $90 (I took this to them), total $390, though I seem to recall a cash discount.

    The condenser was I think designed for a Ford/Mazda ute? But fit quite well. It does have the inlet and outlet on the same side, so we have just run a hose across it to the correct side. Simple.

    They are probably replacing the R/D. $220 is probably about right for a new drier and R134a (it's price went up massively with the carbon tax didn't it ??).

    Carbon tax has increased the price drastically, there are other options as far as gas goes, I use hychill minus 30 which is much more efficient gas than r134a and is much cheaper as it wasn't affected by the carbon tax.
