Hi MGB,I have to replace my condenser too. UV dye didn't show up at the shop, but after a few weeks my AC died again, and I bought a UV light and protective glasses and was able to see the dye.
I bought a replacement condenser and drier a few years ago, but haven't gotten around to tackling this job yet. I just live with a hot car. Still worth it.
Anyone know how good a drier will last on a shelf for? It's still factory sealed.
I bought my new condenser for 220 GBP ($280 + ~$35 international shipping) almost two years ago exactly, from an eBay seller, "coolingsolutions2013." That's half the price of Lotus Parts Online, which wants $431 + shipping.Hi MGB,
Sorry to drag up an old post, but were you able to find a substitute condenser from someone other than Lotus?
