  1. This maybe why my condenser purchase seems to have been accepted okay 6 days ago, but there is no notice of it being posted yet... Although these days of bonkers Brexit mess it could be delayed by import red tape (?) Just as well it's not urgent
  2. We could use a knowledgeable forum air con expert to parachute into this thread and tell us all about it
  3. The Nissens condenser i have on order is specified for either model.
  4. For condenser: 2 x part number 90099-14120 (£1.80 + VAT each) For compressor: 1 x as part number above 1 x 90099-14121 (£1.99 + VAT each) Your local Mr.T prices may differ from how much i paid in quotes above.
  5. ^ That part is attached to the unit (for the Gen 7 model) I don't know if the front bumper needs to come off, maybe not, don't think it strictly does, but if it does then there could be another shopping list for new fixings... We're going to take the front bumper off of my Celica when we change the condenser, the bumper is slightly out of line anyway, so we want to remove it so we can put it back on straight.
  6. Is the RHD version not corrosion protected? Seems like it would be a useful bonus here in rainy Britain.
  7. I doubt they come with O rings. Have already bought genuine Toyota O rings from Mr. T Cost me about a tenner for 4 rings. Apparently the genuine ones are an unusual size.
  8. Had a reply back from the seller who said he cancelled it because it was the wrong part for my vehicle. So the cancellation was caused by incompatibility with the VIN number. I replied back saying it's a LHD part and this should be clearly pointing out in the listing!
  9. I noticed that, and the rust outbreak on the brake pipe fixing...
  10. That's very informative, thank you! You'd think they would point out an important detail like that in the eBay listing! I have a feeling they don't know and the VIN number i provided came up as incompatible. And thanks for the RHD listing, i'll go ahead and order one We can keep calm, don't think there's any need to panic. Whatever the reason for the cancellation i'm glad i didn't get sent a LHD type No idea where they're manufactured, but the one i just ordered is coming from Leatherhead, Surrey. And the price is a bit lower too, result!
  11. yes, still waiting for a reply. That dearer one comes via Amsterdam, and from a seller based in Lithuania. Think i'll pass on that
  12. Just attempted to purchase a brand new Nissens A/C condenser via eBay for 110 quid delivered. eBay item number: 284122679055 Everything seemed to go though okay but then got an email from the seller: This is odd because i didn't ask them to cancel, and can't see why they have. They still are showing one in stock for sale. I provided the Reg and VIN number for clarification and this should tally fine from how it reads in the eBay listing. <<>> There are a couple of other condensers for sale on the bay, but these are unbranded although one boasts a 5 year warranty... Does anyone have any really good recommendations for buying a brand new replacement condenser? And where from? Thanks for any help!
  13. While we were underneath the car today (fitting new rear ARB bushes & drop-links) i took a snap of how Alunox has cleaned up the original cat and neatly welded it onto the new stainless steel pipe. I think the golden colour maybe an effect of indoor lighting but makes it look a thing of exotic beauty!
  14. The chrome tip on mine is held on by a clamp, they said it has some adjustment in or out, and also rotate adjust. They set it slightly offset so it contours with the angle of the Celica bumper. The big fat tail pipe tip on the left [ in the photo above ] is really for an Aston Martin Vanquish, it's a bit of a whopper, and the Vanquish has two of them!
  15. There must be some strangling of the engine breathing when the OEM exhaust becomes an old and crusty age. <> I think the way they firstly fashioned the tailpipe is sort of trendy these days, but i thought it looked a bit too much like the baked bean tin without the wrapper I had a choice from the bunch below, and choose the one in the middle:
