    Angry Air-con Woes!!!

    My manifold decided to burn through one of my air-con pipes sending the gas everywhere! (initially thought the head had gone till i lifted the bonnet)

    I rang vauxhall today for a price and they want £219 inc vat .

    The pipes not even a yard long!

    Does this sound right or have they quoted me the wrong part??

    Has anyone else had a similar problem and solved it cheaper?

    Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated.

    Pete

    Sounds about right for Vauxhall prices. I went to get some tubing from them for a friends veccy. In the end went to a pond place and picked some up. lol

    If it's the rubber pipe, any place that does hydraulic hoses can repair the pipe for you.
