Default "Bolt through condensor" on 2000 Accord?

I'm looking at a 2000 Accord that has no cooling in the A/C. The
owner says their mechanic told them something about a "bolt went
through the condensor," causing the refrigerant to leak out, something
that would cost about $300 to fix. I've never had a good look in the
condensor, so I don't know what goes on in there, and I don't know
what this means. Does anyone else?

The condenser in up front in front of the radiator so is a catchall for all
flying debree. It is very common for a hole to be punched in the condenser
in today's cars as the material it is being made of is getting thinner all
the time.....

Just as Woody says, an increasingly common road hazard thing in many cars.
More commonly rocks kicked up ahead of you on the highway will be the
culprit, but this time it was a bolt. It could have broken your windshield
but it hit lower this time.

The price sounds right. Painful, but right. If that includes the recharge
(it certainly should) it is really a good price.

Might be covered by comprehensive insurance.
