=================================

The cR-V guys who have had similar troubles say you have to change out
LOTS more than just the compressor, since the whole system is now full
of 'schrapnel'. . . .

Default AC Compressor


The AC compressor in my 1997 Honda Civic EX is completely shot.
I was wondering how much it would cost to replace the whole thing?
I took it over to Firestone, and they gave me an estimate of around
$1200. $1200 for an AC compressor, plus labor and parts!!?? Am I
getting screwed by them? The technician told me that AC compressors
for Honda Civics are "very expensive."

Default Re: AC Compressor

I'm in the process of replacing my compressor for the second time on my 95
Civic Ex. My first replacement with a new compressor lasted 4 years. New
Honda Compressors from Manchester Honda are not very expensive($340).
Working and installing AC units for over 30 years, I thought I did
everything right. I replaced the compressor, receiver dryer, and
expansion valve and flushed the system. I was not aware that Civic
condensors cannot be flushed. This time I'm replacing everything except
the evaporator with OEM parts. By the way, if it were my car, I would not
be going to Firestone for AC work. I would find the most qualified AC guy
in town or use the dealer. Good luck.
