Air Con Condenser - 825D or Turbo Coupe

Post by scotty2 » Thu Aug 20, 2020 5:18 pm

From my car thread,
I need an air con condenser that was fitted to the 825D and the turbo coupe (smaller to allow room for the turbo intercooler). All showing out of stock. Dave has found the Rimmers one (also out of stock) but all my alternates are OOS too.
ROVER JRB10015,

Here's a cheaper option Scott but again, out of stock.

Second link is one that gives several alternative part numbers, might be worth searching for those as well including JRB10001 which appears to be the same condenser used in different Rover models.

I have found some in stock if you're sitting down though :

https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Condenser-Ai ... 3182935284

Fairly certain those are the right dimensions give or take a smidge, it's a bit £OUCH! though! Another alternative is Alumiweld and a butane blowtorch as it's aluminium.

https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Lumiweld-5-R ... 0531563568

There is a cheaper option on that but i can't find it just now.
Cheers,
Dave

There is a company called "Alunox" in Wrexham who make bespoke rads and coolers. I've just bought a kit for my Esprit to replace the radiator, chargecooler rad, and AC condenser - which were NLA. I have asked them if they could back engineer one for the Coupe with an option to buy a few if there is demand.

I have e-mailed the Italian source to see if they can confirm suitability as their compatability check says No. The UK. e-bay add says free postage and £224 so not extortionate. Local Air Con specialist could not track one down - All OOS. Don't think Alunox will be less than £224.

I'm amazed nobody has thought of repairing your existing unit Scott, would surely be cheaper and quicker?

Dave

I did ask the guys at Bevrad (who have been in the game for a while) and they were convinced with much drawing of breath and head shaking that it wasn't possible. Having been in the Oil and Gas industry for many years, anything is possible if you throw enough money at it, but I'd rather have a new guaranteed one for £220 than a repaired one for £150. The cost of regassing is £90 1st time and £45 2nd time!

Update. Delphi one not in stock. Due to a mix up in translation (resolved now thanks to translation help online) they have a "Frigair" alternate. Back up to £224 :-(
Hopefully now ordered.

Crikey, there's more ups and downs to this saga than a roller coaster! Fingers crossed you get there some time soon Scott! :wink: :D
