condenser removal

Post by john alexander » 13 Jul 2013, 18:39

Hi . I've just removed the A/C condenser from my C5 as it was holed . I intend to replace it later but until then I will seal the ends of the pipes . Now for the question. would it help to seal one of the pipes in a plastic bag of silica gel to absorb any damp. Regards John.

I would use a poly bag with a couple of packets of silica gel, so you don't end up with gel in the pipework. I would do it on both pipes.
