    My car maybe only 8yrs old but it's probably more to do with the motorway mileage she will have seen a lot of salt/water/stone chips etc.

    You've done many more miles than me, so I don't expect any issues.
    Whilst I check the brake pipes, I have only really looked at those pipes when I've had the bumper off.
    Need to add it to my routine. Happy you're all sorted.

    You can check it without taking bumper off just look through the bottom grill :Smile:

    I may have to order one of these cooler just in case they withdraw it from sale. The 7th Generation is now offical 11 years old and the odd parts like these will not be stocked anymore.

    You could easily make one if you know someone with a pipe bender if I'm honest. Plus your 7th gens not seen the usage mine has I bet yours is like new lol Maybe just take bumper off rub it down and paint the pipe if it's got stonechips.

    Hi, I can see your front condenser is pretty damaged from salt and stones from motorway. Mine has got the same damage. I am sure the pipe must have taken a lot of hit as well.

    Is this kind of condenser a concern from calling point of view?

    What do you mean by "calling point of view" ?

    Maybe he means your point of view? I'm not concerned my A/C still works fine so I'll just leave the condenser as it is.

    Oh right.

    No concern really. Its quite normal to get some debris to be trapped in the condenser or bent fins.

    As long as there are no holes in the condenser it will work fine.
