AC Compressor


Recommended Posts

Hey I was wondering, how do I replace the AC crompressor in my car? (4 cylinder Camry manual)

I was told it's a $600 - $800 job if a mechanic does it but I know someone who has a working one so I'm thinking of changing it myself

Thanks in advance

You can't legally change it yourself. Do you have an air conditioning ticket or all the required specialist tools? If not pay the money or deal with no air conditioning. You will need to get it regassed anyways, so it won't work out any cheaper doing it yourself.

Ok I can't see numbers on it

Sorry but I have been a bit busy in the last few days

Can you tell me the exact model (MCV10 - SXV10 - SXV11) and the month of manufacture.

Maybe this link may help to ID the one you need.

Mark, it will be an SDV10, which are also labelled as an SXV10(identical cars). The genuine Toyota part no. will be 88320-33060(which is the compressor minus the clutch assy).

This is the one required.

Most likely compressor only.

Yeah definitely that is for the compressor only. It has been a few years since I worked with A/C parts and I got a real shock when I was told the price. I would hate to know what the retail price would be.

I bought one for my in-laws 95 Camry from the place I worked for previously and it cost about $300.00 but those prices seem to be a thing of the past.

Sorry about getting your hopes up
