Hi All
Does anyone have any experience with non OEM compressors? Mine suffered the black death and having gathered all other components - the last part I need is the compressor. Breakers are asking £150 for 2nd hand OEM's with no gaurantee of history - but I notice manufacturers such as Ridex and Dasis make new equivalents for the same money. Any thoughts gratefully received.

Compressor self destructs and fills whole system with metal filings. Its quite a common problem on higher mileage Mk2's - mind you most are now I guess. Appears to be due to prolonged overheating due to lack of ventilation where its located - and often accelerated by faulty cooing fan.
