Hi Ive been advised my Heat Exchanger on my Glow worm 30 cxi is leaking and will need replacing.

Im looking to buy a new heat exchanger but Im not sure which part to buy.
Ive found a heat exchanger on Ebay that looks stainless steel with lines on it and four holes in the corners priced at £65 part no. 801831

but I also did an google search and came up with Ak Boiler Heat exchanger 24KW part no. 801837 priced at £362.25.

is there two parts to the heat exchanger?

The fault is that my boiler is losing pressure constantly so i called a Gas engineer out and was watching him assess the problem when the boiler was switched after about three minuits there was jets of steam/water coming from what looks like the bottom corner front sealing ring of the combustion chamber he informed me that he thinks its the heat exchanger that gone and needs replacing. he wanted to charge me £400 for the part plus £165 for the fit. so I wanted to know if I could purchace the part myself but I'm unsure of what is the correct part to purchace.

I hope this explaination helps.

I was thinking at that price and the money that im going to pay out is it better to just add £100 of so more and buy a new Glow worm combi one of the new Cxi range could I just install it myself. my thinking is They should be similar to the last one so just a relative straight swap.
My thinking was to get a certified installer to connect the gas part of it and test it once ive installed it.
Hi i think your find it hard to get someone to test , finish and commission the appliance , i have been asked a couple of times and im not interested , unless i install the boiler i wont finish anyones work.
