C3 Air Con Bits

Exactly! But taking up space in my garage, so will be scrapped/recycled during this winter.
Hi Jimbo, if this is still available I'd be interested as I've been looking to get my AC running as it wasn't on the car when I bought it. All it has is the evaporator! Do you know what else I'd require? Collection only?

Chris, not sure what is still in situ in your car, but the above is what I could "easily" remove from under bonnet and is everything up to the point the a/c pipes go into casing/unit near to passenger side bulkhead. Collection would be good (I am up in Aberdeen) Hate to think with the weight (20kgs at least) and size of condensor, how much to post/courier it somewhere in UK. I've sadly no plans to travel South rest of this year and if I do indeed head to CCCUK Nationals next year, will need all available space in my C3!

Ah ok sounds like the majority of the kit needed, I'll see about getting a pickup and how much it'll cost. My family actually live in Forres which isn't too far but I live near Gatwick... Was it all working ok prior to removal?

Hi Jimbo, had a look and postage actually isn't too bad for 20kg. Would you be able to box it and send dimensions so I can arrange collection please?

Sorry for delay in reply, been busy at work! When car was inspected for me in US prior to purchase, the inspector didn't think A/C was working very well, not blowing very cold. I duly established that there was nothing in the system, hence why I decided to remove it.

I will get it all packed up, weigh it and let you know dimensions and weight asap.

No worries at all! I'll have a look over it and probably replace the seals as well. Might be easier to ship the compressor separately, let me know and I'll arrange the collection. Thanks!

Haven't forgotten about this, still trying to get some suitable packaging sourced etc. Will let you know in due course.
