    Default Aircon Compressor - Where in the N.E.?

    Unfortunately my aircon compressor has gone caput and needs replacing. Can anyone here recommend anywhere in the N.E (nr Middlesbrough) for getting this done and what would be a fair price to pay?
    Thanks
    Michael

    I've just had mine replaced under warranty but it would have been around £700. This was at an independent, but very good garage.

    Advanced Radiators in Newcastle (Newburn area) seem to have a good reputation

    They sorted major air con problems on my Audi A4 a couple of years ago.

    1. Is the compressor actually kaput?
    2. I may have a spare aircon compressor from a Vectra C engine and you can check this out on Monday morning by phoning Darren at DLM Autos in Darlington 01325 480678.
    3. Darren is a fully trained aircon specialist with all the equipment and test gear. I suggest you first off determine your compressor is not actually repairable and then if necessary Darren can repair your old unit or supply and fit a replacement.

    I've just had a quote for a replacement A/C compressor of £451.50, this is all in incl. VAT, labour & a regas.
    What do you think, does this sound ok?
