Toyota 141 AC Compressor

Question

Hi Guys,

Need your suggestions and help.

Recently my Toyota 141 AC started giving me trouble (83,000 KM)

* AC wont get cold (Sometimes it does after driving for awhile)

I took the vehicle to AC mechanic and I was informed that the AC Compressor needs to be changed and mechanic informed this is usual with 141 model.

He also suggested rather than fixing the same AC compressor which comes with 141 (Valve) recommended to fix a one with no valve which is a permanent solution.

He quoted 38K to replace the compressor and Labor charge 9K (With full service)

The compressor will be a re-conditioned one which he will give me 1 year warranty.

To fix a same as 141 which comes with the valve he quoted 20K but he warned the same issue might occur.

 

What I want to know is,

Is this a normal fault with Toyota 141 ?

Is it worth it to pay 38K to change the AC compressor to a better one or stick to the one which originally comes with 141 ?

Your thoughts on pricing  and other recommendations.

Thank you for reading :)

Better to stick to the original spec one. But it's really expensive and only available in few places. Agents will quote you around 250,000 and other places around 60,000 - 70,000.

Yes I too agree. If its a VDC (Variable Displacement Compressor) like the one you get in Axios, Allions and Premios they are more efficient. I've got one for my Allion 260 two years back from a AC joint in Dehiwala for something like 35k. It was Singapore or Taiwan made.
