Air Con layout

Post by randall977 » Wed May 15, 2019 10:24 pm

There are some parts missing from my air con - the condenser and some pipe sections etc. I can't figure out where the condenser fixes - there is a threaded bolt underneath but no corresponding bracket. Does anyone have a photo of the area where the water bottle lives (as below) showing where stuff goes?

Any info gratefully received. I've trawled the internet but can't find any images showing where the condenser fits - behind the water bottle?

Thank you, it is quite useful - I have been looking at the diagram but it doesn't show exactly where the dryer (sorry not condenser) is fixed.

The Drier is under the windshield bottle washer, just follow the lines to the condenser in front of the radiator.
