    Default 2007: XLi A/C Compressor giving grinding Sound? Not repairable?Terious Recommended

    Aoa All,
    Dear Fellows,Suggest me what to do for my XLi A/C compressor.From last 2 weeks, my A/C compressor has started rattling sound(sound like 2 metal bearings grinding against each other)
    On Sunday,I tool to Bashir A/C & others & found following:

    1.Compressor Condition:
    They told that your compressor is finished now.(Car is driven somewhat around 100K from 2007 around 7-8 years)

    2. Rotor based steel body compressor is repairable or not?
    Bashir Autos told that this 2007 model Corolla's A/C Compressor is not repairable as it has steel metal body,It has rotor based assembly structure so fixing/repairing is not possible

    3.Carbon shed off to condenser(might be;possibility)
    They told as you have switched on A/C in this state from 3-4 days so it has possibility that it may shed off carbon which might moved & spread to your condenser A/C coils & all a/c parts.So you have to replace your condenser & inner coil too if u want optimum trouble free cooling.

    4.Used Terious Kid Compressor(Kabli)
    So they told that from 2002-2012 Corolla,they have compressor issue so better option is that we will install A/C compressor of Terious Kid (i think that is also known as Kabli) from SherShah within this model & it will give better cooling even Terious Kid compressor gives better cooling than Original Toyota compressor(original stock is of Denso Compressor)

    5.Total A/C setup cost by BAshir
    Bashir give me total cost of Rs. 20,500/= for Terious Compressor with 1 day guarantee ( Rs. 4,000 will be less if inner coil would be found OK after opening inner dashboard)

    6.Other shop's quotation:
    I checked with 2 other shops,almost all gave similar quotation like this,I got reasonable from Yamin A/c(in same line of Bashir):
    6a. Terious Kid Compressor(with 3 days cooling guarantee)
    Rs. 12,000 including new condenser & gas refilling.
    6b. Original Compressor from Toyota (Denso Brand)
    Rs. 26,000 - 29,000(inc. GST) only for compressor

    7.Bismillah A/C point
    They also give quotation of Rs. 14,000 for Terious Kid A/C compressor but they also raised another point that this compressor might be repairable and may be this sound is of some inside bearing( so they are asking 5k-6K for repairing bearing BUT THAT WILL BE CHECKED AFTER OPENING COMPRESSOR, IN CASE CARBON HAS SHED OFF FROM BUSH then pay remaining 9K for installing new compressor
    other A/c WALAS are telling that they r giving u dodge & this compressor is not repairable.They will open your compressor & then will charge extra money for repairing this,this,that bla bla.

    8.Repairable or not
    My question is that rotor based compressor have some bearing issue or not, if it has then is it repairable or not BECAUSE I HAD BLIND TRUST ON BASHIR A/C FROM LAST 19 YEARS but 1st time i am puzzled as i have some money issue these days so cannot spend 20K for A/C repair

    9.What about Sanden or another brands:
    Other brand compressor can come in low cost or not

    10.Any shop recommended for compressor at SherShah
    My brother in law suggested me to go myself to shershah & buy myself this Terious Kid compressor,according to him,it will not cost more than 3.5K- 4K at shershah.
    If i buy myself & do not replace condenser and only recharge/refill new gas in 2,500 so maximum 1 thousand for labour,so it is coming somewhat around Rs. 7,500
    Is it possible or not

    11.FINALLY
    Last but not the least kindly refer any good A/C wala you know who can honestly tell me that is my compressor repairable or not repairable

    12. IMPORTANT POINT:
    Keep in mind that I have serious financial issues so want to spend as minimum as possible but as I have Special Children in my house so A/C in car is necessary & i cannot leave any single day without A/C because it is not my necessity but of my special children.
    I want to retain this car for long time as family car & it has daily run of around 100 Km average,It has CNG and rest overall my car is in Good condition.

    bro as i have mentioned above

    1. Bashir A/C, Tariq Road giving Terious Kid compressor in Rs. 11,500 excluding gas charging,drier & condenser( all together costing 21,500)

    2. Yamin A/C, Tariq Road did not tell me individual compressor price,he is asking Rs. 12,000 for whole setup (including new condenser & gas recharging)

    3.Bismillah A/C , Tariq Road quoted Rs. 14,000 including Terious Kid compressor and gas recharging

    4.Auto Xperts , Gulshan Block-5 quoted only Terious Kid compressor ranging from Rs. 5000 -6,500 from shershah depending upon the condition & year of Manufacturer of compressor

    Note:
    a. Terious Kid compressor has little different size than original Toyota fitted (Denso) so there are some different bolt sizes and different assembly so it is necessary to make special bracket(of metal) for making seat to compressor within Engine Bay so this bracket price is also included with price of compressor

    b. I also checked with Sabir A/C wala (as pakwheeler recommended & pasted good feedback/comments) about him so I also called him ,he quoted Rs. 11 K for Terious Kid but he also told that he will replace the bearing within original compressor & including labour he would charge Rs. 5,000 -6,000

    c.As i have short of money these days, I know myself that for perfect cooling the solution of 21.5 K recommended by Bashir A/c wala is true but for shortage of money finally i have decided to repair the bearing & try it. According to Sabir A/C wala, it could last 6 months so i think 6K for 6 months is not a bad deal, It will cost me 1,000 per month which seems reasonable to me now & after 6 months ,inshallah if Allah gives me money then i will Inhsallah replace whole system with new one
