Leak in air-con pipe

My broken air-con is apparently due to there being a leak in this pipe.



It's the one with a cable tie around it.

Can you still get hold of them? What's the part number? Or is it a case of phoning round scrapyards?

Thanks :-)

looks like a plug , may be undo it and check the wires if its a break in them .

Agree with Andy, doubt very much that is an AC pipe, and I run a Vehicle AC company.
Who told you it was an AC pipe?

Aaahhh...


Looked more closely and yes, the AC pipe is under the cables, Somebody has commited the sin of putting a cable tie around the pipe, not recommended as the tie can cut through the ally.
Pipe may be available from Rimmers or X-Part or should be repairable as it is the low pressure pipe which is usually made of thicker gauge ally.

I think he means the aircon pipe the loom is cable tied to, you can see it better in my pic below. If. this is the pipe you what I did have one in the shed, I can have a look for it if you still need one.

Yes, that's the one - the aluminium one right behind it. Apologies for the bad / misleading photo! The air-con chap put the cable tie around it this morning, so I knew which one he was referring to.

Bren: Yes, interested, if you still have it.

Thanks.

I will try and find it tomorrow, need a sort out in the shed anyway. These are available new from Rimmer brothers but they are 42 after vat and they charge around 10 for postage.
Cheers Bren.

Thanks, Bren. Appreciate it.

Out of interest, what is the part number?

Hi Bren

I managed to find a brand new one on eBay for about 20, so am waiting for that to arrive - hopefully, it's the right one!

Thanks for all of your help. :-)

Unfortunately, JUE001720 was, I think, for the petrols - certainly didn't fit anyway. At least I didn't pay full price for it! Looking at Rimmers again, would this be the correct one?
