306TD Repairing Air Con pipes

Discussion in 'Peugeot 306' started by Stephen Howell, Jul 16, 2003.

  1. Has anyone ever repaired the aluminium air con pipes that run across the
    bottom of the car near the radiator? Mine have corroded where they pass
    through the clips - I believe this is a common problem. A whole new pipe
    (the long one) costs around £70. Cutting out the corroded section and
    replacing might be cheaper!

    if you can get them!
    Try an air con specialist. They can replace the alloy pipes with rubber
    hoses. cheaper and lasts longer. where are you in the uk

    Are Mitchells down the Bristol Road still going? They might be worth

    Unfortunately it's expensive whichever way you look at it. I decided to
    wind the window down rather than spend the 200 quid it would cost for
    even the cheaper parts. That was for replacing the whole lot after the
    parts guys at Pug told me that after the rad one at the front goes the
    others aren't far behind. Lots of cars also had them done in the
    warranty period - so I guess 5 years out of mine (S reg) wasn't too bad.

  6. I have not decided what to do yet - leaving it broken and winding the
    window down is definitely an option.

  7. Yes they are, but without pressing them they only recommended that I
    obtain the original Peugeot part and either fit it myself or get them to
    fit it. I'll speak to them again.
