    Default Installation of aftermarket AC in Mehran 2006

    AOA Fellows,

    I intend to install AC in 2006 Mehran.

    I have done bit of working on this and have concluded on the below mentioned cost and equipment details

    Denso Complete AC fitting KIT for Mehran. 16K-17K Rs.
    Compressor Duet (Kabli) Scroll type. 4k-5k
    Labour for Fitting. 4K-8K.

    If i use a new Denso compressor, it will cost around 12-15K.

    I dont intend to use new DENSO compressor considering the reputation of more load on the engine.

    Will keep you guys posted and will try to take pictures too.

    Intend to attempt the task within next 2 weeks.

    will appreciate guidance from the experts to ensure perfect fit and performance.

    I have checked and all AC fitting guys have suggested not to go for SANDEN AC kit considering its locally made and is of not so good quality. trying to get a quote on its price too.

    Do pray all goes well.

    TAKE CARE.

    Mehran comes with Denso unit factory fitted which is 40-42K from market, Sanden unit is around 34-35k but not effective as Denso. Kabli compressor are hit and trial. New unit is atleast peace of mind for 5yrs if your radiator and cooling system is good.

    car is orignally 78K driven with no heat up issues reported to date. Running on factory setup of thermostat valve and automatic radiator fan flawlessly ALHAMD U LILLAH.

    Should i change the coolant or any other thing in the cooling system before the AC installation?

    I have just installed last week in my Mehran (2010, Euro2) a Kabli Compressor. Cost is as under:-
    Kabli Compressor: 5500
    GAS+ OIL + Labor etc: 2500
    Total 8k

    AC is working very good in morning and evening. However in direct sunlight it works so-so though it flows cold air but cabin is not chilled.

    Ager true A/C ka maza lena he to Genuine Denso kit (would be around 40-45) lagwa lein from Suzuki 3S. I had previously Factory Fitted Desno A/C which worked really well for first 5 years and then the compressor died. Even in direct sunlight it managed to cool down car compartment.
    However, this Qabli is good (compared to its monetary value i.e. 8K). However, I will scrap it in next season and will go with Genuine Denso from Suzuki 3s.

    Noman

    thanks for the feed back. what about fuel consumption and engine heating issue with Denso?

    Have you tried using blinds to restrict some sun light in the cabin to improve the cooling under direct sun light?

    First you should flush your cooling system then pour coolant and detect for any leaks and make sure all hoses clips are in top notch condition. If you expect good cooling then get Denso unit from Suzuki Dealership else i can give you contact of Abu Bakr Bhai who is PRO in Car AC field. 03009192687
    His shop is in G8/1 Sarya chowk. He also has kabli compressors and new denso and sanden units too. Call him and ask him and tell him your budget then you can visit his shop.

    Default Installation of aftermarket AC in Mehran 2006

    Bhai do whatever yu like the one thing which mehran lacks is the condensor fan and the position of compressor which should have been bolted in front in order to get itself cool through the air from the front jali these r really v important for the ac to work better

    experts, please guide what is the difference between rotary, piston and scroll type compressor?

    also which one is better in cooling. which one has more load and associated costs, if anyone has any idea.

    also shouldn't cars be using rotary compressors?

    So much for the original DENSO kit and 3s if your compressor lasted only 5 years. Do you think its worth the investment. Isn't Kabli better then? Just thinking loud...5 years is too short of a life for the compressor.

    And don't put everything on the compressor? are you using R143a or R12 ? if you are using R143a then are you also using multiflow condenser and evaporator or not ? HOw are you charging the system? by exact weight or by ambient temperature / pressure method or just by Ustaad ka Jugar method ?

    The compressor life will depend on all these questions... it will die down quickly if not put in correct running conditions.

    guys got a quote for sanden piston type new compressor and complete fitting kit for 26K.

    Denso complete kit and compressor 32K.

    Duet compressor (also DENSO JAPAN) used Kabli with Denso KIT 26K. Also multiflow condensor will be used.

    Success AC with complete kit and compressor also available dont remember the exact price.

    please suggest. I am inclined towards Either new SANDEN compressor and kit or DUET compressor and DENSO KIT with multiflow compressor.

    Bro i just had a detailed discussion with Abu Bakar Bhai, seemed like a nice guy. told me that sanden kit and scroll type duel compressor will work perfect however multiflow condensor is not suggested in Mehran since it will cause heating issues since air flow to the radiator will be restricted. whole setup with normal condensor will cost 20K .

    Incase DENSO kit is opted with normal condensor (not multiflow) and DUET KABLI compressor will cost 26K.

    What to do ???
