Air Con Condenser

Just replaced the condenser - that's the third condenser that has failed in the vehicle's 18 year life time for exactly the same fault! The top left corner (as viewed from the front) had sprung a leak - is this a known weakness and, if so, is there an easy solution?

Thanks for the responses.

Examining the foam block I noticed two things. Firstly, it is becoming detached from the slam panel and, secondly, it has become crusty and abrasive on its exposed faces. I have concluded that it not only holds water but then, probably through vibration, applies an abrasive action to the corroding part of the condenser.

i have shaved the offending abrasive faces back to 'proper' foam and re-glued the foam blocks (both sides) back onto the slam panel. On inspection the foam block does not now touch the condenser. We shall see if this puts a stop to the condenser corroding!
