The average cost for an ac condenser replacement is between $520 to $700. Labor costs are estimated between $195 to $247 while parts are priced between $325 to $453. Get a personalized estimate based on your location and specific car. Estimate does not include taxes and fees.

Any restrictions in the A/C system need to be identified and repaired or a recurring problem with the A/C condenser is likely.

We recommend replacing the A/C drier when the A/C condenser is replaced. The A/C drier acts as a moisture and debris filter for the A/C system and a new part will keep the repaired system clean. (This will add additional parts and labor cost to the estimate.)

A failing condenser will cause the A/C to stop cooling. The condenser is at the front of the vehicle, right in front of the radiator, and can be damaged by road debris or a even a small front end accident.

If they are found to be leaking, A/C condensers should be replaced.

"Stop leak" compounds are not recommended, as they are a temporary solution and can damage A/C components, resulting in expensive repairs.
