My 2003 4.4 V8 petrol (BMW M62) has a serious problem with coolant leaking from the BRC Genius condenser unit. It is of the old black type.
I split it apart to replace the gaskets which were very fubarred and the aluminium body was corroded and a bit crumbly.
I cleaned as best I could, reassembled with new gaskets however as I suspected would happen the leak recurred.
Therefore I think the best course of action is to scrap the condenser and replace it with a new one but from what I can see I think the black condensers are now obsolete.
2 questions; 1) does the silver bodied rectangular BRC condenser that I can see for sale on
Ebay and elsewhere flow enough gas and 2) does anyone have a recommendation for a repair specialist in Leicestershire who would do the job of replacing it and adjusting the settings to suit?
