Fellas,

Im putting a new IRD into a freelander and the cooling pipes on the new unit (second hand new!) are damaged, how can they be replaced, i cant see how they come out the side of the IRD unit?

Any pointers, much appreciated.

Thanks

Colin

Not good news I'm afriaid. The heat exchanger plate is expensive at about £75 on fleabay. You could try to carefully remove it from the unit you're replacing. Speaking from experience they are very difficult to remove without damaging.

The heat exchenger plate is held in place by no more than a rubber seal and sealant. Another option would be to get the pipes repaired if at all possible, if they're cracked maybe you could take it to a tig welder and see if they can be welded?
