Does the compressor make use of the alternator at all?

they run off the same belt if that is what you mean.......

if you are speaking about the mythical water cooled aircon system that briefly appeared in the corsa B series, then no. it's a shitty system and it's hard to find one.

No thought as much just wandered if there might be a different bracket or something needed to accommodate the aircon

I prefer natural aircon.. when i was fixing my front engine mount.. for the second time.. i just removed most of my aircon.. it was forked when i bought the car and never worked.. ill be removing the rest of it when I replace the engine this year.

So far it looks to cost R4500 for the parts, second hand.

Anyone selling any of the needed parts can contact me as an interested buyer.

How do you tell the two systems apart

I would think, the one would be your normal gas cooled air con system and the other using a water cooling system.

Im not 100% on that, and havent seen the two different types either myself

haven't seen the water type one yet, but it won't have a compressor for the gas as it is an electrical sytem....

IRGURT is there any difference between the non aircon console and the aircon version. I know the centre knob pops out but is there any difference between the actual faces or is it just the mechanics behind the face that changes

of that i'm not sure.....i'm guessing they're the same as i've seen that the button on a non aircon can pull out.
