    Air Con Condenser broken!

    After going to my local garage for a quick re-gas, I was astonished to be told that the condenser had a leak. They have rung me today to tell me that the bottom panel of the condenser is missing and is corroded! My cdti is an 05 plate! Has anyone else had this expensive problem as i would be interested to know if it is a design flaw! Apparently it is common for vauxhalls to encounter this problem as there is no guard to protect it from stone chips etc!

    If it is the same problem, you are very lucky to still be under warranty! Is going to cost me about £350! Let me know how you get on! Am interested to know if it could be a design fault!

    Last year on my 54 plate cdti the service joint thats under the airbox released all the gas out. Garage said it was badley corroded. They repaired and resealed it but they said that to fix properly I would need a new hose. Today its finally gone again and a new hose is 120+vat.

    Along with all the other issues i've had with my car, I'm coming round to thinking that the MK5 astra is a pretty unreliable motor (the 1.7 anyway)
