    Morning all. It’s AC compressor clutch bearing day today. Last ditch effort to cure the noise whenever the AC clutch is engaged. I really doubt this will fix my problem but I’m spending $20 in hopes I don’t have to spend $200.

    How much does a new clutch and compressor cost plus labor cost? Just a ballpark idea.

    I spent a $1,000, don't know if I got ripped off.

    Depends on what all was done. OEM Denso compressor with clutch is $200. At a bare minimum they should have replaced the accumulator and that’s maybe another $25, o-rings $15, PAG oil and Freon another $25. So close to $300 in parts and supplies as a minimum. Depending on circumstances like if the previous compressor grenaded and sent shrapnel through the system then the orafice and condenser should have been replaced and all the lines flushed. Best case time-wise we’re probably looking at the better part of a day but I can’t speak to the cost of labor.

    Swing and a miss. New bearing is in and it still sounds like a nickel rolling around in a coffee can. Good news is replacing the compressor ought to be easier than dealing with the damn retaining clip in the clutch. Cool thing about for 4-cyl though is there’s enough slack in the ac lines that I unbolted the compressor and lifted and tilted it all the up till it was even with the top of the radiator and the clutch was facing upwards. But not before I spent 2 hours dicking with it in place.

    From what I was told the compressor needed a part that Toyota doesn't sell separate. So I had to get a new Denso a/c compressor.

    471-1018.jpg
    This is what I got, with supplied o rings. Price around $550. Then recycling 134a fees. Add new 134a plus oil. Then labor.

    Sorry for the big picture.

    Price on the compressor seems kinda high. It’s $199 direct from denso or $190 on Amazon

    I just ran the model number of the A/C compressor at local auto part stores. It seem that $550 is what it's going for at most places, local.

    Amazon is the cheapest. https://www.amazon.com/Denso-471-1018-A-C-Compressor/dp/B0093DQ7KW
