    if they spent three and a half working on cleaning the parts making their outer look shiny the system wouldn't work at optimum


    1 - did they replace the drier?
    2 - how did they clean the system pipes/condenser/evap?
    3 - how did they dry it if they cleaned the items mentioned in #2
    4 - how did they check for leaks in the system after assembling everything?
    5 - how long and how much vacuum did they pull before charging with refrigerant?

    1-Drier as in the Filter with Silica Gel- Nope
    2-Condenser was scrubbed with a brush and Washing Powder. System pipes and Evaporator was not cleaned.
    3-Condenser was dried by leaving it in the sun for approx. 10 minutes.
    4-The Mechanic used Soapy water i.e foam and put a bit on the top part of Condenser and a bit on the bottom part ( Where the 2 Blue coloured caps are )
    5- They Vacuumed it for 12 minutes.

    Get the condenser checked by another 3s or trustful guy and ask whether it is genuine or not.

    4-The Mechanic used Soapy water i.e foam and put a bit on the top part of Condenser and a bit on the bottom part ( Where the 2 Blue coloured caps are ) .. if they pushed in compressed air, they probably choked the already old drier real bad. this part is ideally neatly done with OFN..
    5- They Vacuumed it for 12 minutes. --- that is like almost nothing, ideally 45 mins to 1 hour vacuum pull then with pump off ~30 mins to see if the system holds the vacuum or not.. if it holds then system is good to be charged with refrigerant

    That's on my To Do list tomorrow- They finished with my car approx. 17:40, so I didn't have much time to lurk around. Only dealerships will be open tomorrow, because of Friday.

    Bhai, can you please explain what OFN stands for?
    And, 3S was rushing- From one car to another.
    Can Chinese / Thai AC parts give same performance as OEM's?

    my cars system was Effed by 3s in last year and drove it with jammed comp for 6 months and 3s estimated new comp new condensor new pipes and listing to that i did not even seen the bill and esimate as i know its better leave it
    i took it to some local mech which i got to know
    he checked ac by connecting a fredge comp to ac comp and putting on load on system and by which my ac started makking screeching sounds and said only comp is faulty
    so next day they open up most of system condensor dryer etc and we saw comp it had no OIl in it was all khushk mech said lets put nd 8 oil and see if this comp has some life left in it and comp came back to life and working fine now a days
    now main MAksad of this story was that u should also check the comp as before my ac died i had same issue no cooling in day load on engine a bit and freezing in night
    it could be simple as oil
    Hanjiii Kaa Storeey Eehh !

    The thing is- AFAIK, Auto Club did not use OEM parts, which they said that they would source from Suzuki 3S dealership.
    And you know that there is a big difference in OEM and copies- I.e brake discs, axles etc.

    This accident happened when car was driven 11,000 km.
    EFU and Suzuki Islamabad motors didn't come to an agreement, since Suzuki ISB raised their Labour rates and my car needed a lot of perfection work.

    The nearest and good place was Auto Club. I left the car there, took Bus to Faisalabad and collected car 21 days later.
    I only paid 5% depreciation, since I had Insurance.

    There were no mentioning of prices in the bill as you can see above, which was my fault. I trusted Auto Club blindly, but when I compared prices today, the bill just doesn't make sense- Radiator and Condenser costs like 65,000-/ for just them 2 parts, how can you manage to do all denting and painting, bumper replacement, ac gas refill in just 43,000-/? '

    Some Chah Sultan visits I assume.

    I am just spreading awareness, no matter how famous these garage's are, do not trust me.
    Whenever I get work done in FSD- I stay with the car, no matter what.

    The thing is- I did not pay the full amount, EFU did, I only paid 5% of the total amount.
    And, EFU is meant to use OEM and only OEM parts. The case is different for JDM cars...

    I have checked in Corolla and Honda City- They were awesome.
    Corolla was a rental one, 2012 model, 196,000 KM driven and car was on CNG when I checked it
    City was new, a friends one.

    Will get into the bottom of this.
