Full AC service on my Tata Safari Dicor: Tasks performed, costs & more

Post service, the AC cooling has increased significantly, but the fan has become pretty loud on levels 3 and 4.

BHPian anuragisaacrout recently shared this with other enthusiasts.

After a 2 year long period of owning this vehicle, finally the A.C. had lost some of it's cooling effect. On visiting the service station, I was told that the condenser needs to be serviced as well. Here is the cost breakup for the same:

The following was done:

  • Coil cleaner & brightener mixed with water was sprayed onto the Car AC condenser.
  • After letting it sit for 10-15 mins, the condenser was spray washed (I would recommend you to avoid spray wash as it led to bending of the fins).
  • Refilling of the AC gas (Floron Ultra Pure Super Cool Refrigerant 134a) was refilled to a pressure of 85 psi.

Pros:

  • Post service, the AC cooling has increased significantly and I had absolutely no complaints earlier knowing the pending service.

Cons:

  • The AC Fan noise is carrying to the cabin post service even on second level, do not quite know why.
  • The fan has become significantly loud on levels 3 and 4.
  • Post service due to the pressure wash, the fins have been bent.

Cost:

  • AC Gas - Rs. 1400
  • Condenser Chemical - Rs. 100
  • Labour: Rs. 700

Total: Rs. 2200

The cost incurred is over what a general AC service should have costed as the labour was not extremely significant like a general service. I hope this helps all the Tata Safari Dicor 2.2 VTT owners out there incase if anyone is confused about the cost.
