Just wondering how many Ody Owners have actually had a rock damage/destroy the condenser coil?

I just had it happen last week.

2006 with 10k kms.

As of 20:40 hours on 30 May 2007, I haven't had a rock hit my A/C condenser.... but it seems like that would be harder to predict than figuring out when the next asteroid is going to collide with the earth.

A/C condenser failure in Odysseys

Hi all, the A/C condenser problem was something I learned about while I was shopping for a van. It appears to be a common problem. Here is a link:

Right after I brought my Ody home I cut out a rudimentary barrier out of black window screen, and fastened it over the exposed AC condenser area with zip ties.

I cannot afford an $800 repair bill....

I just had my A/C condenser replaced (~$900) so I went out and bought $3 worth of GutterGuard and black ties. I mounted the GutterGuard from the inside. The result looks OK and if it can save me a $900 I'm happy.

It's just a shame that we (the customer) need to do this due to bad design.
