Today we completed a Holden Astra Condenser Replacement.
This Holden Astra came into us because the air conditioning wasn’t working. After pressure testing the system and inspecting for leaks we discovered the condenser needed replacing. The condenser was damaged from an impact that had occurred on the vehicle.
The condenser is a device used to change the high-pressure refrigerant vapor to a liquid. It is mounted in front of the engine’s radiator, and it looks very similar to a radiator. The vapour is condensed to a liquid because of the high pressure that is driving it in, and this generates a great deal of heat. The heat is then in turn removed from the condenser by air flowing through the condenser on the outside.
Your car air conditioning system is made up of lots of loads of working parts like
- Receiver Drier
- Expansion Valve
- Cabin Filter
Once we replaced the Condenser we completed an AC Service which includes a re-gas with R134A gas and UV dye. Now the Holden Astra has icy cold air conditioning.
