Mk1 mx5 1.6 air con condenser

Postby Davemx-5 » Mon, 02 Jul 2018 6:35 +0000

Hi all,

My air condenser is badly screwed and way beyond repair.

Mazda says they've discontinued the part.

Anyone else wanting to save their aircon manage to find a solution?

Excuse my ignorance, the condenser ? Is that under the hood or behind the dash?? I removed and since disposed of the under hood parts, but the behind dash stuff is still there..

As far as I remember, the condenser is the cylindrical shaped object attached to the Aircon radiator at the front of the engine bay (if you look down at front of radiator you should see a small eyeglass type thing on the top of it). The bit under the dash is the evaporator.

Rob bought a used one off you, arrived during the week cheers. By air con condenser I mean the radiator. Mine has totally disintegrated and the cores just fallen out completely. Going to give this a go sealing them soon. Is it possible to convert these to the new air con gas?

Someone on a merc forum said they can use some sort of oil to allow the new gas in the aircon system but no idea.
