Default OHC 1.5 Type 1 compressor gone bad

Hi,

My AC compressor has gone bad and needs to be changed.

Any suggestions where could I source a new one/ reconditioned one in Mumbai?
Which are the brands that I need to consider?

All help towards this is welcomed.


Tks

Ralston

Is it possible to open the compressor and service/repair it ? I have my doubts.

IIRC all HCs come with Denso AC compressors. Repair kits/spares for the same are not available in the market , so changing is the only option.

Was quoted Rs.16000 for equivalent Sanden/Subros compressors for HCs, plus service & labour costs of @Rs.2500 from my AC specialist.

@ kavesh: Not sealing the inlet/outlet may get dust inside, and cause failure. Get the insides cleaned out with a dry nitrogen blow and flush with compressor oil before installing/running/gas charging, and hope for the best.

Thats incorrect - OHC's came with Sanden's. The one I replaced and the one that went in was the same part no.

Absolutely correct. OHC's OE A/C compressor is from Sanden.

Attaching pictures of the OE compressor and another part that is changed (sorry forgot the name) that I had sourced for a fellow BHPian's friend.

I just can't recall the cost

EDIT: @ralstonraz - IMHO avoid repair at any cost. The compressor can pack up again anytime or crack while opening.

Thanks guys.

Spoke to a couple of AC guys too and even they recommended changing the entire compressor.

Got a quote of Sanden(original japnese) for 9.5k. In addition will have to change the drier/receiver too. The total cost should work out to around 12k.

It was hilarious when I wrote to Sanden, that they mentioned that they supply only to 's Honda. That's when I wrote back stating a person form their head office itself recommended by to one of the dealers in Mumbai. You should have seen the Sanden Head of Sales ------ He was at a loss of words!!! hahaha...

I plan to get this sorted next week. Will update you on how it goes.

Done.

Compressor changed. Cooling back to normal.

I am looking out for AC vents left and centre one above the ac blower switch.
