2005 Porsche 997 Carrera 2S

PostPosted: Sun Feb 24, 2019 7:17 pm    Post subject: New Condensers Reply with quote

I finally got round to removing my front bumper today to remove the condensers ready for replacement which was simple enough.Should any liquid have come out , I knew they were leaking and just thought there would be some sort of residue but nothing .
My cooling radiators don't look to healthy either i'm wondering should i replace these whilst in there.
Any thoughts and tips appreciated.

...Just completed the same job;water radiators in similar condition but left them because car keeps temperature and they have an easier life being protected by the condensers...also because your system is open to atmosphere you should change the drier as well...oh and replace the o rings for new...

...one final thing; I purchased some PAG oil and coated the new o rings and assembly joints with it prior to reassembling....

GMG is spot on .. replace the dryer if the system is left open to atmosphere .

You wont get liquid out .. a tiny amount of oil is possible but none wouldn,t worry me .. make sure you add 30 - 40 mls of pag oil when its regassed for the replacement condensors .

Rads look fine .. if no obvious leaks then the next thing you look for is a pink chalky substance around the base .. this would be old antifreeze .. if nothing then dont replace imho .
