About Aircon Radiators
The car's air conditioning system functions to condition the air, which means whilst cooling the air in the car down, it also helps to ensure there isn't too much moisture in the car, so it stops the air getting too humid. The car's air conditioning unit also cleans the air in the car by filtering the dust and other particles from the air inside the car.
The Land Rover aircon radiator, also referred to as a Land Rover aircon condenser is fixed in front of the engine's radiator, looking a lot like a smaller version of the radiator.
Hot gas or vapour is pumped from the Land Rover aircon compressor into the Land Rover aircon radiator where it is cooled and turned back into a really cold liquid which is pumped into the aircon evaporator and flows into the car as cold air. This whole process is then repeated over and again.
Naturally, issues can arrise with the Land Rover aircon radiator. A common reason for loss of refrigerant vapour/gas in the air conditioning system is the failure of the air conditioning radiator. If there is insufficient cold air it could be a clogged aircon radiator. Situated in front of the engine's radiator the Land Rover aircon radiator is an easy target for rust and a buildup of dirt which can cause this part to malfunction.
Land Rover trivia
- When the Pope was visiting the UK in 1984, Land Rover designed him a customised Popemobile to use in the country.
- Most cars get an immediate redesign after the prototype is designed. Not with the Range Rover, however! The 1966 design was considered perfect as it was, which never happens in the automotive industry. The Range Rover is considered a work of art, and one of them is even on display in the Louvre.
- The designer Charles S. King worked with Rolls Royce to design jet engines before going on to build the Range Rover. King would go onto building a car around those jet engines that then held the world land speed record, the first turbine-powered vehicle to do so.
- Inspired by the Jeeps that had been used in WWII, the first Land Rover's steering wheel was in the middle of the dashboard. This was partly to counter the need to create left and right-hand drive models for different countries.
- Land Rover was notorious for trying to find ways to avoid paying taxes and extended that to their customers too. They built the Defender 110 so that it could (just about) fit 12 people! Technically, that meant that they could class it as a bus, and owners didn't have to pay standard road tax.
