CONDENSER REPAIR

2008 Scion xB

Air Conditioning problem
2008 Scion xB 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic

my xb which has only 25,000 miles, has a small leak in the condenser caused by stone damage. With that few miles and like new condenser-no rot out-is it possible to repair rather the replace the unit-$1500. By the dealer. Lets think outside the box.I am sure on of your old school carpros has the answer.

I have never heard of anyone repairing a condenser. The pressures car reach over 400PSI and the aluminum is way too thin.
There may be some less expensive aftermarket parts available for it though.
