    Default My Khyber's AC died!

    I have my Khyber's AC dead. Mechanic checked it here in atd and told me that compressor is dead too. I refilled gas last year and it lasted hardly 2 months.

    Initially AC was working v good, but one evening one of the pipes got busted due to friction with the body and all gas escaped.So the issue started. I went to this mechanic, he repaired pipe and filled the gas. But the cooling started dying after say 2 weeks.

    I revisited him he put some more gas and AC worked for another 2-3 weeks. Finally it was just and fan.Mechanic went abroad and winters came in atd. Now when I revisited him he told me that there is no gas and after checking compressor with adapter he told me that it needs to be replaced.

    I have a v v busy schedule, I cant get much time out. SO need sincere advice what should I do. Mechanic told me that Kabli sanden will cost 4500 and he can arrange it. Also it will need foundation worth 800 and other charges!!!

    So what you guys suggest.!!!

    BTW, my car's AC was so good that in monsoon I used to see fog coming out of it!!!

    yar i think you shud ditch the success compressor, kismat pe khelnay wali baat hai, and get the compressor of efi cultus fitted (new or kabuli). it has excellent cooling and wont put too much load on the engine

    Ive used success A/C parts with very very good results, be sure you get them from a dealer - I got mine from The Success Agency in Karachi, NOW THE TOP

    Whoever works on your A/C system should have a good working knowledge on refrigeration. Proper amount of oil, a good vacuum, charging gas by vapor method by proper weight, and knowing for sure no blockages/restrictions exist and that your condenser is upto the task your A/C compressor will work nicely for a very very long time

    go ask around A/C shops and look at their equipment and techniques - a proper A/C tech would love to share his proper workings with you.

    Exactly - the businessmen in Pakistan want to invest Re1/- and get out Rs100/- . Its simply not possible. And the reason why China got such a name in Pakistan is that there is every type and quality available there.

    If you want to pay next to nothing for something then you will get next to nothing for your money.

    Guys guess what, the compressor was alright. The moron I met previously was a bloody dishonest one.

    I find a young but very honest AC mechanic. His name is Naveed, he just repaired an obvious leak, filled the gas and its working again!!!

    I'm so much Thankful to him and Almighty ALLAH.

    His Address for Abbottabad / Haripur and Mansehra residents

    Naveed Car AC
    Shop between Gurad filters and Shalimar motors, on Mansehra road.
    and his cell no
    0342-5185553

    You can give my ref Dr.Yasir with gray Khyber!

    he charged v v reasonable fee for his services.!!!
    and please never go to Indus AC, he is worst and Ejaz even pathetic!
    I have had very bad expericence with them!!!

    Thumbs up

    I installed a Denso compressor 3 yrs ago in my 1989 swift, its running great till now. I have heard that Sanden is good too. I have a 92 khyber and the mechanic just told me that its compressor is frozen.

    I am also going to get one soon, i am looking for Sanden and now SUCCESS name comes up.

    I am living in Islamabad but i am from Abbottabad and I know the mechanics there are really bad at what they do, so brother on a weekend come to pindi sadar, here you will find good mechanics.

    I recommend MR. COOL in G8 markaz, I usually go to him for AC issues, he is a bit expensive but knows his work.

    so good luck and wish me luck too, coz in abbottabad u can survive summers without AC but in pindi/isl its burning.....
