    Greetings,

    My original air con condensing radiator on my 1984 UK 300D has sprung a leak. MB UK no longer sells a replacement so I'm going to have to turn to an OEM supplier. The dealer shared the following part number: A1268300670. I believe the original was made by Hella-Behr?

    Any suggestions on where I can purchase one?

    Many thanks!

    Go to your local radiator repair centre, they will recore it for and test..and probably use the same core as Hella would..

    I'd prefer to save that as a last resort option if possible. It will likely cost the same amount to procure a new unit, like this Hella condensor sold on Ebay

    All I need is confirmation that it will fit (I've asked the seller today).
