    Default Air Con Compressor

    My 06 SRi150 has just been in for a main dealer service. I mentioned that the air con had stopped working and they, like me, assumed it required re-gassing. I have owned it since new and it has not been previoulsy re-gassed. This cost £70 and I know could have got it done for £40 to £50 elsewhere but I decided it may as well be done whilst being serviced and save me time taking elsewhere. (Particulary as we are going away this weekend)

    BUT - they are now saying it requires a new compressor - £630 , and that they needed to gas it up to establish this ! So I am already £70 down, but I was wondering if anyone has had a compressor fitted elsewhere and what a typical price may be for supply and install ? I am based in the Birmingham area so there must be air con service places about ?

    Yes, expensive job; regas, remove and replace, regas
    However if that includes labour then that isn't so bad

    On the Vectra B the air conditioning pump sat right at the front of the engine, quoting 4 hours to remove and replace
    However, they found that on removal it could be rotated and dropped out, and reverse for refitting, saving 3 hours
    Not sure about the Vectra C, but it is probably similar

    Although on completion the air conditioning worked, I wasn't happy with it, and so sold the car a few weeks later
