My advice would be to check at another outlet .

Thx for your advice I will surely check with other outlet or with AC guy.

cost of parts are as follows

bearing -250
cluth coil -275
clutch - 300-600
facing the clutch rotor - 50
changing the pistons -each piston costs around 200

The noise that you are getting might be due to the worn out bearing and not the pistons .If the bearing is worn out , it might just rub with the body of the clutch coil and cause sound . just change the bearing , I also think the bearing might need a reseating bush .

I guess the repairs might cost a max of 500 rs plus gas filling .

Can you please suggest any known a/c mechanic in chennai to help me fix the ac compressor noise

Thx

Here is the update on my compressor,

I have still not change my zen compressor, Reason - well the cooling is very good.
but the problem is that it is making much more noise now.
i had asked one of the spare parts dealers and he said to find out which gas is being used and then only he will be able to guid me which compressor to buy and how much it will cost me. Can any one shed some light on this.

regards

Hi,

I have a 2001 zen vx and recently when I went to the AC mech he gave me a gyan stating that the R12 gas that my zen was using for the AC has been banned and that I will need to convert to R134a which I am sure your car has ( post 2001, all cars have R134a).

To add, I have a question to the gurus on the forum. The A/C mech told me that I will need to change the compressor oil, compressor clutch, 2 pipes and the diffuser or something. The total coming close to 8-9K if there are no leaks detected, my question is, how good will the conversion be and will it be reliable? As a new kit comes close to 32k.

Cheers
Shrey

Here is update on my compressor,
I made up my mind on compressor and that it needs to be changed, amount 15000/- My wife suggested to sent the car to her relative's friend who works at MASS. when he had a look at my compressor and said that it need to be changed. but when he removed the compressor he found that only bering had been damage. the result I saved cool 15000/-
my total cost to repair the compressor is 5500/- I an yet to have the actual break up of what had been replaced, once I get those details , will post them later.

regards
