I just received a BMW Group condenser (made in Turkey) from a California BMW shop. While it may be fine in electrical terms, it's "form factor" leaves a lot to be desired.
The tangs of the "clamp" will not compress together requiring a longer screw be substituted. Even then, when tightened, the mounting screw hits the clamp of the condenser causing it to not seat correctly unless "blue torqued" ... a procedure I never use on my old Airhead.
I didn't realize it was not a Bosch part when I opened the plastic bag, so I'm stuck with a $16 part that I can't use. When ordering, I specifically requested Noris points, I guess I should have specifically requested a Bosch condenser.
So, WHO has the real-deal, HTFG, Bosch condensers?
It's Monday, so I can't call around . . ..
