My condensor is screwed, all the fins on it are bent and im guessing this is not good at all for air-flow to the radiator (car over-heats), is it possible to just cut the lines and pull the POS out ?


Dunkly, please kiss and make up with vibr8n.

If you want to remove your condensor. Go for it. Best go to an aircon place if you think it still has refrigerant in the lines. Help the environment a bit as well instead of releasing the gas in to the atmo.
Advice ?... If you think the condensor is buggid ... Fit a new one..keep the air con functional..you will wish you did on a hot day or when you come to sell it. Factory air con cars are designed to run ok with the condensor in place. Your overheating could be caused by something else.

I recently removed one at home and it wasn't a pleasant experience!! I definitely won't be doing it again.

I don't have too much advice to offer other than that if possible it would be good to try and leave the air con functional - even if you don't use it, it will certainly make a difference when it comes time to sell.

Hrm guys, My condensor fins are EXTREMELY bent due to a stupid mistake that i did.

Can a fin straighter help that? or is it gone?

Is it hard to replace? cuz i can buy one of ebay.


Cheers.

*tries to be like every other hard (unt here*


just get a fin straightener or a set of pliers like was mentioned before you idiot. like c'mon alot of people here have better things to do than answer back already answered questions like for example whinging like a b!tch or whining in a group meet (cwa meeting)

or.... you could just try a fin staightening tool, or if you haven't noticed a difference in air con or engine temp you could not worry bout it....

Why must u be a d**k? if you have nuthing decent to say, f**k off.

Just about all your posts ive personally seen are about how dumb they are because they don't know.

If your so good, start your own forum.....better yet, go build cars, im sure people will buy from an arrogant f**k like yourself.
