Re: Auto Air conditioning specialist recommendation?

Hi,

I'm looking for a recommendation for an auto air conditioning specialist (Not the Land Rover dealer, I know where that is and they are not specialist)

The reason for this request is that I have replaced the condenser myself (yes I did get it drained of gas first). I have 2 reasons for wanting specialist resource:
1. I fitted new o-rings from a packet in Migros because that was all I could find. The are the right size but unsure regarding specific material suitability
2. I had to bend a pipe manifold on the replacement condenser to match the old one/make fit and there's a change that area will want metal brazing.

Thanks for your help

Andy
If the O-rings aren't suitable for A/C use then they'll stop being o-rings in very short order. Who knows if the Migros o-rings are Viton, NBR, PNBR, or cross linked monkey snot? I don't.

Good luck finding an automotive A/C shop that would braze a crack. You might have better luck taking the condenser to a regular HVAC shop. Few garages even rebuild brake calipers nowadays - they'll have a smoke axe for getting bearings off and loosening rusted fasteners, and possibly a MIG for patching exhausts, but paying one for Al brazing/TIG welding a cracked condensor pipe will probably cost as much as a new evaporator.
