How do I repair a leak in an auto ac condenser?

My ac condenser is leaking and I have no idea how to repair it.

You will need to have the condenser replaced if the leak is from the condenser. Be sure to check for other leaks using a dye to make sure that's what needs replacing. After the problem is corrected be sure to have the system purged of all air before adding new freon.

You can try to repair it using brass abraising but really it is a hard fix and would be better off to buy a new condenser, go to a salvage yard.

This must be taken to a repair shop because of the chemicals found inside AC condenser units, law requires it to be handled by a trained professional and disposed of.

You are going to want to find out where the leak is coming from. If you can find it, usually a hose, you can take it off and go to your local appliance store and they will give you a replacement.

Well make sure that the leak is not internal. If it is you have to get a technician to replace the parts.
