Nice guide. I'll be tackling my ST200's one at the weekend. Didn't know it was holed until I tried getting it regassed.

Cheers for the positive feedback guys, makes going to the extra effort of taking the photos worth it!

Just to let you know if you're still not sure about doing it yourself, I was quote the best part of £100 for the condensor and £200+ for labour as apparently the radiator needs to come out and the fluid drained... yadda, yadda! Don't swallow it, it really is about an hours worth of work on your back and is thoroughly worth it when you get your system re-gassed.

Only problem I have now is the compressor kicks in and out and it's constantly in while driving, often causing some quite interesting driving sensations. Any clues? Someone told me there may be too much gas in my system?

Andy,
Since having mine re-gassed after replacing the condensor I also hear my compressor clicking in and out and every time i look under the bonnet the compressor is on.
The air con works ok so I assume thats how they are.

Would like to know for definate though if anyone out there knows.

I finally had the time & good weather to get mine done this weekend. I actually managed to do mine without having to undo the radiator bottom mounts, since they'd absolutely rusted solid & the bolt heads were rounding off. I bought a pattern condensor that had a removeable bottom mounting plate held on with 4 bolts. I removed that then I had just enough space to get the new condensor in and then refit the bottom mount in situ with the condensor supported on it's upper mounts. Oh, and the old one came out the same way as the bottom was no longer part of the unit due to rust lol!
