can you call me by phone/

Expert:  Dan replied 1 year ago.
I'm sorry but we are only able to communicate through this website. Did AC stop working all at once or slowly stop working? Has anyone looked at it yet? Thanks
Customer: replied 1 year ago.


yes and the price was toooo high how much will it cost and i was told that it need a compressor stoped workinf all together

Expert:  Dan replied 1 year ago.
How much were you quoted? If the compressor has failed it will be a little spendy but I might be able to help you buy parts yourself to save some money. Thanks.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.


they said over a thousand dollars plus labor

Expert:  Dan replied 1 year ago.
I can definitely understand not wanting to pay that much. Did they say replacing compressor and recharging the refrigerant was all they were going to do? Thanks
Customer: replied 1 year ago.


I do not know all i know is that the only one that can fix it is the dealer ship so far they say that the battery has something to do with why they are the only one that can do it my daughters car is the one i am asking for

Expert:  Dan replied 1 year ago.

The compressor is $1000 alone at the dealership so that is why the price is so high. Then it is about 3 hours labor to install compressor and recharge system then another $200 for refrigerant. Your best option is to buy the compressor yourself which should probably be able to cut costs in half. Here is one on ebay you can win for around $100 then if you have a shop that doesn't charge as much as dealership you can probably have this all fixed for around $500. Let me know if you have questions, thanks.

Thank you i wish that you were abled to fix it can you recomend


or do you do the work ? if so how can we get in touch(NNN) NNN-NNNN/p>

 

Expert:  Dan replied 1 year ago.
I live in Northern Minnesota so I'm afraid that would not be possible even if that website did allow it which they don't. I would recommend buying the compressor yourself off ebay then call around at least 5 other shops for quotes. Also if you call your local parts stores they can usually give good recommendations of shops to try. Let me know if you have any other questions, thanks.
