Default Re: Ac compressor gone bust?

Hi guys, the ac compressor of my chevrolet optra 1.8 is dead. I was advised sanden 507, spoke to 2-3 ac guys from team bhp directory.
They quoted 14k-16k for replacement.
I checked the price of compressor from swastik motors kashmere gate, the price of sanden compressor, new model of 507, is 6500.
Any idea what would be the cost of fitting it and what other parts need to be procured?

Sorry to hijack this thread... My Toyota Qualis (Petrol) AC suddenly went bust. Checked the fuse etc, seems ok.

Can you good folks recommend a good AC Technician in Hyderabad who will not take me for a ride?

Also I heard many folks mention Subros. Will contacting them be a good idea?

Many Thanks

Got a used Aria a week ago. One day the A/C wasn't working - and upon restarting the engine it did ok again - tho I perceived lower cooling. On a trip day before yesterday, saw fumes from the compressor's pulley/belt and then it packed up altogether - and the mech said the pulley's not moving so it's probably busted.

Is it worth repairing these? Or should one just change the compressor? What are one's options outside of OE parts?

Contact a reputed ac technician. From the symptoms is likely that the clutch or the pulley only are damaged. Repair is easy and recommended. If that fails, compressor may be replaced.
