Hi, I have a 93 jeep grand Cherokee with 250,000 miles. I was quoted $650. 00 to have the compressor and dryer replaced. I did the labor(30min) and the shop recharged it for around $370. This also included the compressor, dryer and o ring kit. Thanks, Mo
The air conditioner/compressor sits on the front passenger side on top of the fender. Remove the water reservoir and then you can disconnect and remove the air compressor. I do not know yet how to remove the air dryer as I cannot see how to remove the air lines from the dryer. I did remove the dryer from the compressor though, by removing a single screw then turning the 1/4 turn and pulling it out of the compressor....so at worst I will be able to put my new compressor in with the old dryer.
If you can't figure that out by looking at it, you need to pay someone else..
Well the compressor is not hard, I think (without looking at it) it is like 4 bolts, and a couple of connections. The problem is that most good A/C guys will tell you to replace most of the system at once or when you replace the compressor, you will have to replace most of the parts, one after the other, and perhaps eventually replace the compressor again not to far out... From what I understand... the compressor tears parts up inside, and sends them through the lines to the other parts, eventually eating each of them up.
You are best off to get a rebuilt compressor. Other parts in the compressor are probably worn also so replace the whole unit. Most suppliers won't warranty a compressor unless you change the receiver dryer at the same the & flush the system.
It's easier, faster, and more often than not, cheaper to replace the entire compressor.
replace the whole thing. you can do a new one or get one from a junk yard
Yes new units are much more efficient.
I was just looking at one of these tonight. Advance Auto has them for 37.00. I am going to have to get one to replace my compressor just hope it isn't a two to three day job doing it. BigJohnJ
There is no reset on the disconnect, you will need to check the fuse's at the disconnect and replace the on that is bad. But most likely if you blew a 60 amp fuse you have a short somewhere, check your termanals at the compressor to see if the compressor went to ground.
