    I take you can't get a new one from Honda anyone? ideally you should replace all aircon component with new parts not matter how old the car is, due to dirt and cross contamination.

    bearing in mind a new Honda one is more than the Car is worth, that won't be happening . . .

    so we are not in an "ideal" situation

    do I look like Rockefeller ?

    There are loads of people who would spend a lot on their 4th Generation so without prior knowledge for your car everyone is blind to the level of your passion.

    Good luck in finding aftermarket parts thou.

    You'll need to double and triple check but I think compressor type 10pa17c and look in the likes of alibaba or aliexpress and you might have some luck. Otherwise you can sometimes find OEM parts out of eastern Europe for a reasonable price especially for the older cars.

    your wasting my time and yours

    my 93 car is not having thousands spent on it to keep you happy

    stop telling me what to do with my car

    you of course are welcome to spend and do what you want with yours, I don't dictate to others

    after all , YOU may be Rockefeller in disguise

    If money is a problem. Don't replace it? It's not like your car is worth a great deal?

    I knew of the Rockefeller center/family, I just don't understand what they have to do with an AC Condenser for a 4th Generation Accord

    @Gary93 I can appreciate you are upset because there has been a problem with your A/C, but there is no need to respond like that when another member offers advice.
    You may find others are now less likely to help you now.
    Why would they spend their time, given for free, trying to help, when they could get a response like that?

    @Ichiban was offering you advice @Gary93 , he was not telling you what to do. He was saying that lots of people do spend lots of money on their cars regardless of the cars age whereas others don't. As this is your first post, we havent met you, had a previous understanding of your level of passion towards your car and its not therefore possible to understand whether you are a person who spends regardless or a person who doesnt.

    It is clear now however, and I also wish you the best of luck sourcing an aftermarket part and hopefully you get it fixed soon.

    You may have better luck finding a replacement part on ebay. It may be listed as a Honda compatible part, or it may even be listed as a Rover compatible part. I think it was around this time that Honda owned or had a stake in Rover so parts may be interchangable.

    Been busy so missed this post, most possibly got a few condensers to do the job in my workshop you can have for a few quid, or a donation to charity but with a attitude like that in the workshop is where they can stay.
