I've got a mk5 astra z16xer. Gana replace the condenser over the weekend but having issues finding the right o rings. I see vaxhaull do metal ones with rubber insides. Guy at work reckons I can just use green ones.

I did mine recently along with new compressor.
Condenser was Nissens and came with 'o' rings. They were the green ones only.
The compressor uses the 'bonded washer' type of 'o' ring. That's the metal washer with the rubber inside.
Nissens condenser by the way is really nicely made with full corrosion protection applied unlike OEM (hence they quickly rot)

Which one did you order?
No one on here recommendd you one... you only posted a photo of one on ECP.
The one ive given above is the one you need. If yours is the original condensor it should have a GM sticker with delphi on it with the old part number too.

Yes, so one I have linked you is the correct one. You likely bought the wrong one.

If you want to buy it from their ebay page: here you go

I would never trust the ECP catalogue
