This. There can't be many places for it to leak from..

Unfortunately, this was a local garage who I haven't dealt with before. That was only the feedback given, but the dye stains were on the compressor, and that was the 'expert opinion' on the A/C system. Looks like a trip up to Serek is on the cards, but there wouldn't be any point in making the 200+ miles round trip without taking at least  a good second hand unit with me. :-\

Think you would be wiser buying new inplace of 2nd hand as for the effort and time fitting to find the " God 2nd Hand Unit" has dried out seals and leaks as bad as the unit it is replacing.

From my experience with AC its nice and worth having but expect to spend big when it packs up...200 for a new compressor would be my route Ken :y

Thanks amba, I'm thinking the same...as I've just had the A/C system on my 3.2 Elite completely refurbed by Bee Cool ACS in Kettering, Northants and it cost around 300+ and of course refitting by SOS Automotive. Just don't want to be told that it was a leaking 'O' ring and the overkill wasn't necessary ::)

I think an unknown aged AC compressor thats been off a car and not had oil/gas running through it keeping all the seals supple is too big a gamble when you consider the cost to gat it refitted and gassed up only to find its "still leaking".

Buy new and have a certain peace of mind and if Serek is fitting it will be done properly and work as designed  :y

I'm sure you are right, will give Serek a call when he gets back from Greece.
