All done.  In the end there were 2 compressors to choose from both by Denso and I bought the wrong one, schoolboy error.  Apart from them looking very different the price is different too, £285 v £355, Mine is the expensive one! Independent garage near Ringwood did evacuation, compressor change, regas and test for £140.  All good now but I'm £1600 lighter after that and the MOT, that's nearly the value of the car!

I am getting very high quotes. Not sure if the banger is worth it anymore.

I'm struggling to figure out the correct compressor for my 2007 250 SE-L. Am I right in reading that the DCP51001 turned out to be wrong for a 2007?

My Part number on sticker is 6SBU16C/447260-1465. But notice the DCP51001 is a 6SEU16C. Any help appreciated finding the right part. I've got a local air con specialist who will fit if I get one and my alternative is 2nd hand which I'm a little wary of.

Eeeek my AC was causing those revs the other day.

However I had the Battery off the day before for something else and after a drive it settled so I put it down to ECU reset.

Will keep an eye on it as my car is same age as all of yours despite only doing 75k....

    1. 1. If you were to consider buying a Hybrid model over 5 years old, would you be worried about the reliability of the Hybrid system?


      • Not really as Hybrid systems are always reliable
      • Not if it had a Manufacturers Warranty on the Hybrid system
      • I would not buy a Hybrid model over 5 years old
