280zx A/C compressor repair kit

Recommended Posts

Hi Mate

 

Might be worth swinging past the local Auto A/C guy and getting the source of the grinding confirmed, is it the clutch unit or the compressor itself ?

 

Don't forget that with just about any work on the A/C you will be up for a regas afterwards and for that you will most likely need expert help, could be quicker and more efficient to give them the entire job ?

 

Cheers

Can you post a photo of the compressor and its data plate, I may be able to help to where and what to buy.

 

You should be able to buy the parts from Cold Drive if they are available. http://ishop.cooldrive.com.au/

 

The grinding sound is not good. The compressor could be seized or seizing.

 

Will need to be re-gassed for sure

Was a bit harder than I thought. Suggest you call Cold Drive and ask if they sell kits for them, not sure how lucky you will be.

 

I ended up fitting a Unicla compressor (or a more common brand Sanden will do) on my 260 which I assume will also fit a 280ZX but it looks like the ports come out the rear whereas mine out the top
