    I will not recommend original compressor as it puts a lot of load on the engine though the cooling is great, try finding some alternative compressor fro bilal gunj....
    a person here at forums quoted that he had installed the comp of Daihatsu Boon and was pretty satified with his performance the price tag was around 4k i guess....
    Sharing is caring....

    before condenming the compressor ensure that the fan responsible for cooling the condenser is in good condition and if any shrouds are missing or leaking air.

    The other part is check the system working pressure and make sure the correct amount of gas is in the unit - overcharging causes loss of cooling too specially when idling because the condenser gets very very hot.

    I also had same prob as wid Mr.ali_noor. My santro had same issue.

    Its compressor had leaked seals and i got it repaired but after repairing it didnt worked like chilling and at rest there was no cooling at all.

    My mechanic told that compressor needs to be changed. But original is very costly.

    Why the original one put load on car.? I asked mechanics and they said that if you put sanden then it will put more load but original Halla will not.

    Hello PW! I want to add update to this thread. I had weak compressor in my santro as i mentioned before.


    Today i went to Coolsun car A/C and they told that they will fit Toyota Duet compressor in it. They said original one is costly and made in china.

    So, I installed the Duet compressor. It was bolt on fitting with alteration in piping only. After installation two things i noticed very good in car.

    1. Absolutely no or very minimal load on engine. Car runs on A/C as running with A/C off.

    2. Cooling is awesome and no noise of on/off of compressor.

    I will update how the A/C works in next coming days as it is first day.

    Yes, i installed Duet comp in my santro and i am very satisfied with its result, no load on engine, cooling is excellent, make sure it available in good condition & guaranteed, a shop in bilal gunj market in basement, don't know its name, but its specialized in all car A/C stuffs.
    There's no car like Mercedes-Benz.
