Frequently asked questions about air conditioning condenser repair & replacements
Read our answers to questions about air conditioning condenser repair costs, symptoms and more.
What does an AC Condensor do?
The AC's condensor is a component that changes the AC refrigerant gas into a liquid refrigerant through cooling. Conversely, the heat generated during the cooling process has to be dissipated which is done by the condensor's fan.

- Mechanic will advise if any other parts need to be replaced.
- Mechanic will refill the AC system after replacing the condensor.
- Mechanic will inspect the AC system once again and test the condensor to see if it works properly.
- Mechanic will make any adjustments if necessary.

- Poor fuel consumption.

How often should I replace an AC Condensor?
Should you experience problems with the AC system or the condensor, then it is advisable to have the AC system and the AC condensor inspected and, if necessary, have the condensor replaced. Seeing that the AC condensor is especially prone to deterioration it should always be serviced as and when stipulated in the guidelines set out by your car's manufacturer.
When should I replace my AC condenser?
There is a number of reasons why an AC Condensor can go wrong. One example is when the condensor fan does not work properly, in other cases it can also be a case of the condensor being clogged up, usually because of the refrigerant getting contaminated with debris coming from other parts of the system. It is important these isues are addressed as quickly as possible to prevent further, more expensive, damage to other parts of the system.
How much does an Air Conditioning Condensor replacement cost?
The cost of replacing an air conditioning (AC) condensor depends on your car and what parts your car's manufacturer recommends using for the replacement. Find out what you could save by having your AC condensor replaced by ClickMechanic by selecting your car at the top of this page!
Can I still drive with a faulty ac condenser?
If it has been identified that your ac condenser is faulty by a professional mechanic it is recommended to get this addressed as soon as possible. Especially in warm weather driving without air conditioning will be uncomfortable!
Can an air conditioner condenser be repaired?
Repairing an air conditioning condenser is only in rare circumstances an option, it is much more common that the unit has to be replaced. Often replacement is the only solution to a leaking or blocked condenser. A condenser that has been fixed will not achieve the same level of performance and reliability as a new unit.
How much does a replacement air conditioner cost?
The cost to replace an air conditioning unit on a car will depend on a number of factors. First and foremost it depends on the actual AC parts that need replacing, and the make and model of the vehicle. An air conditioning condenser replacement on average could cost close to £400, but prices can range from around £200 to £600.
Is a faulty ac condenser an MOT failure?
No, an AC condenser is not regarded as a safety-critical item in your car (unlike brakes for example), so it not checked during an MOT. Hence, it should not cause an MOT failure.
What happens when the AC condenser goes bad?
The air conditioning (AC) condenser is responsible for cooling the refrigerant in the air conditioner, so if it goes bad, it will most likely fail to convert the gas to liquid, and it will not cool the air as it should.
Can I replace just the AC condenser?
Yes, it is possible to replace just the AC condenser, but it is generally not recommended depending on the extent of damage. The condenser is almost always replaced as part of further air conditioning system repairs.
Is the radiator and AC condenser the same?
No, the radiator and AC condenser are not the same in a car. The radiator is responsible for cooling the engine to keep it at an optimum temperature, while the AC condenser is responsible for converting the air conditioning refrigerant gas to liquid thus cooling the air inside the cabin.
