  1. Air conditioning - replaced 9 year old condenser

    General Discussion (8G)
    Quick update. Bought 2009 Civic 1.8 EX 4 months ago and had a few issues to resolve, one of which was the standard dodgy aircon relay. Replaced the relay and had the system recharged and all was good for a couple of months, but last month (when the temperatures went up) noticed the air not...

    Hi Guys, Could someone please let me know if an AC condenser is an easy job to change? Mine is leaking and has to be changed. the compressor is also showing some green dye around the pulley/ clutch so this may need to be done too. its blimming hot in the car in the summer days! I have seen...
  3. AC/Heater New condenser required

    Bugs, faults and irritations (8G)
    Hi All, I'm in need of a new condenser for my 1.8ES hatch. I had a mobile air-con engineer come out to re-gas and check a short while ago. He used a gas sniffer and found a small leak from the condenser which will obviously need changing. I've spent some time reading past posts and doing...

  6. AC/Heater Air Conditioning not blowing cold - Condenser?

    Electronics (8G)

  7. AC/Heater XXL mosquitoes?

    Bugs, faults and irritations (8G)
    Good morning, To my horror, I noticed that cooling fins have come off in three rows on the condenser.:facepalm: So, to not have them work even more loose, I thought about removing the front bumper and glue them back in place. Question is, can you even glue these materials properly and what...
