cost to replace condensor and compressor on 2008 honda crv?
air died...being told compressor died due to condenser going first..being told my car is notorious for this...(96 K, 10 years old)
what should it cost?
$700-$1100 at a ASE certified shop.
Dealer cost for the compressor is for the OEM Denso compressor is $716. Dealer cost for a Honda OEM condensor from Honda $443. You would need to have the refrigerant recovered, the system flushed, the receiver drier replaced (OEM $25) , system evacuated and leak-tested, and refilled with R-134a (about $200). Labor to replace the components would run about $450 or so (minimum), for a total of $2200 or so. You could buy cheap Chinese junk like someone suggested and maybe get away for $1100 if quality and longevity is not a factor, For instance, it would be OK to get a system working for a quick resale. Overall, expect a dealer cost around $2200, but if you don't care about what you put in your car, go ahead and cheap-out by getting an ebay compressor for $120, a condensor for $100, a receiver/drier for $100, and have them installed an running for the $1100 or so.
