Anyone Know Where To Get A Cheap A/c Compressor?

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know where to get a reasonably priced air con compressor for a 1995 LS400? Went to have it re-gassed today and the compressor has seized. Lexus quoted me £1200 :ohmy::ohmy::ohmy:

Found a place in the states that does reconditioned ones for $500, but that is without the clutch. What are the chances of the clutch being knackered as well?

Cheers guys

Andy,

Contact Sewells in Texas, USA (see my post in suspension section). They are extremely competitive, and parts work out less than half the price compared with buying in UK. Parts prices in this country are just silly money for older LS400s.

Good luck!

Well I just took delivery of my new air con compressor from the good old US of A and here is the best bit - it only cost me £139 including shipping!!!

It is a brand new Nippon Denso compressor (same as original) with clutch assembly and I found it on Ebay with a buy it now price of $200. I nearly bit his arm off!!! I got quoted £1200 for one of these from a Lexus dealer in the UK. Only problem was he sent it via US ground mail so it took 6 weeks to arrive, just in time for the end of summer :duh:

The sellers name is Scooby the Core Man if anyone is interested, and he stocks many car parts for many different cars so he may be worth a look.....

I cant wait to get cool air again B)

It was bleedin hot, too hot for me to be honest Ricky. We stayed near Monpellier in the very South of France and on the hottest day we had, it was 36 degrees at 8.30 at night B) B) B)

I would have murdered to get my aircon working that night :tsktsk:

It's not far off that today though, just getting ready for a nice BBQ and a few beers.......... I will try not to fall asleep ala JAE 2002 though.........
