2012 Condenser Leak

Hi Fellow Volters,

My car has about 84,000 miles and the AC decided to go a couple days ago. I dropped it off at my area Chevy dealer and they texted me that the condenser leaks and that the repairs will be $ 1,730 parts and labor (apparently not covered under Voltec warranty). I searched online and the part seem to cost under $ 200.

He even mentioned that I needed to replace the cabin filter that will cost $ 59.95, which I already installed last year that cost me $ 14 online.

Anyone had the same experience? I'm thinking to buy the part and get my regular mechanic to work on it.

Or is the compressor condensing the refrigerant by compressing it from a gas to a liquid and the condenser just getting rid of the resultant heat.

Yes, to dissipate heat according to the Gen1 Service Manual!:cool:
