Just been in touch with VX and they can't find a replacement LP valve under any of the 2 part numbers I gave or any of the ones on there system for my car.

They do have the HP 13277003 but Vauxhall said it did not match my system.  :o

I would rather replace with new if I can.

Yes, that is the valve part no. of the one Vx replaced on my 3.2. ;)

The condenser seems to be the weak line in most AC systems due to it being vulnerable to the elements.

Think almost every car we have had over the past 15 years has required a new condenser .Last being 2007 Astra 1.6 which was the easiest of all to replace ,closely followed by the omega.

Currently got my wife,s 1.2 TCE Clio to do...stupid French attach the condenser to the main coolant radiator so it comes as a single unit and circa 220 to replace.

Does anyone have a photo of the two extracted valves?

I was also given from another VX dealer p/n 3041827 but on his diagram it showed 2 on the same pipe so he said that can't be right and advised me to go to a specialist air con firm and may be they can help.

Its all getting a bit confusing. It should have been a simple buy and replace job.

The LP is a standard tyre valve core.

Do VX sale them or is it just a case of getting a complete valve from the tyre fitter and using the core from it?

An Astra G uses the same LP valve if that's any use   :-\

When I needed one & my dealer couldn't find it, I phoned Andy Clears who guided my parts dept  :y

Just went to order 13277003 and was told that part is not for my reg/vin number. I've ordered one anyway.

Another question are the dust caps both black or should they be different colours?

I asked for the diagram to be emailed to me of the HP valve they matched with my vin and the diagram doesn't match the Omega, so it's a mistake on there system.

Are both dust caps interchangeable? They look the same except one has 24 and the other has 12 on it

As I stated before, that valve is for a 3.2, so will it fit your 2.2? ???

Sorry for being blunt.

Go to dealers order 13277003, tell them that's what you want,, then go to Halfords, buy a pack of tyre valve cores, and a valve core tool, then follow the guide how to the HP valve, then with your new tyre core tool remove old LP core, and fit new one, take to air con people get regassed..job jobbed.

The 13277003 valve has arrived. Looks identical. Thanks Lizzie.  :y

3 questions before I go and get the tyre valve core.

Will these be better long term because of the higher psi? https://simplybearings.co.uk/shop/p20027487/Pack-of-4-High-Quality-Schrader-Type-Short-Valve-Cores-for-Up-To-200psi/product_info.html?backstep=1

Would the re-gas machine be able to re-gas past the valve OK?

What is the max psi of the LP side?
