There were more than one type of compressor fitted to Xantias. I think that one model had a tendency to leak at the joint between the 2 halves of the compressor body, if this is the problem with yours, then it might be time for a new compressor.

Thank you V6 :) , or is it :cry: ??
I wonder if anyone knows as to which type leaks between the halves. Mine is Nov 2000 manufacture. Could have another go and see if I can read off the numbers if that will throw any light on it. Any one any more info?? Will any late model compressor fit? Thanks.....
