Hi everyone. The aircon condenser on my 620ti is punctured so I'm hoping to have it replaced next week with a new one I ordered. I received the new one yesterday and unpacked it to take a look but I'm not at all sure it's the right part. It looks far too long and the connection points look to be in different places.

Can anyone confirm if it's the right part or not before I take it in to have the work done next week?

:wtf:

what's the part number on it?
I don't have a part number for it. They asked what car I had, I explained that it's a 1997 620ti and they sent me this. If it is the right part then fine - it just looks massive to an untrained eye!

Great, thanks for checking.

:beer2:

I'm desperate to have the aircon working again. I can't drive with the windows open due to the pollen! On days like this the air is warm outside to begin with, so having the fan on full blast does not help much - it's SO hot in the car!

Do you know if the 600 is fitted with pollen filters? If so I'll ask the guys at the garage to renew them at the same time.

Mine sits in the sun all day at work (no shade anywhere) so by 5 it's a total oven, complete with bum-burning leather trim. Aircon will be a Godsend!

Well, turns out it was the wrong part after all. So still no aircon. I thought as soon as I looked at it that it would never fit in the engine bay.

:banghead:

Can anyone tell me the correct part number and perhaps suggest a good place to source it from?

They have made the classic mistake that's the one for a 2.0 Honda engine not the 2.0 T seres Rover engine. The part number for that is JRB100340 from a Rover dealer but it's the same for the 2.0 L series Diesel.

You are quite right. The supplier was very apologetic and is sending the proper part within 24hrs. Can't complain..... much.

Doh! My parts catalog must be wrong! Just looked at it and the parts catalog must be the wrong way round with the one for honda engine being for the t-series and the t-series one shown as the one for the honda engine!

No worries. The garage I use are very good (VW/Audi specialists who I have been going to for years since I used to drive Golf's) and they did not charge me anything for time spent.

Thats the second time in a month they have refused to take any money! I'm going back next Friday with the correct part, can't wait to finally have it working!

I'll be relocating to France in six weeks time and I want to have the aircon working before I get there where it's even hotter. I'll hang onto the car for a year or so and then get something LHD - maybe a Mercedes CE.

Soon as I saw the picture I realised classic supplier mistake.

The Clutch slave cylinders on the Rover ti and the Honda engined 600s are very similar, but, no way are they interchangeable. When I ordered a slave for one of my TIs, I did stress that they are different but, they still sent a Honda one. Needing a quick solution, I removed a used slave from an R820 in a breaker yard having first checked it's operation. It was fairly new. A few days later, the correct new AP clutch slave arrived... all shiny gold.... will come in handy one day.

Another thing, needing a replacement radiator for my one non-aircon Ti earlier this year, I removed one from a Diesel R620 which also had AirCon. As this yard invariably drain fluids and removes batteries, as I undone the condensor pipes I was very surprised as there was a sudden big release of refridgerant....:(.. so, I bought the two, rad and condensor as it may come in handy for my two other TIs which do have AirCon.

Point of my post, the Diesel and Petrol Turbo engined 600s share a lot of common parts..... Rad, condensor, slave cylinder and lots of other stuff. There are two sensors in the top reservoir tank of the Diesel rads.... not needed in the TI ... so, I fitted blanks obtained from my local radiator specialist.

In the wodge of History and Invoices that came with one of my TIs, there was a bill to replace the clutch slave cylinder.... 247 notes!!.... 130 of which was for the slave cylinder!!! Diabolical!!!!!!!

I did not pay anywhere near that for my new slave. Maybe they made a mistake charging me much, much less.

Regarding >> Come in handy : I suspect there will soon come a time when some of these key parts for 'our' cars will be difficult to obtain. Not much evidence yet but, just in case I'll keep a few spares handy. If I never use them I can always get my money back on them.

Going by that theory I have a spare R600 electric aerial that one day is sure to come in handy. If not I can always flog it on EBay.
