The best way is to avail the service of a specialist to checkt he compressor if it could be repaired with warranty, if not change to a new one, checck the system forr leaks with pressurised air,charge the correct gas to the pressure requiried to get the best perrformanc.If possible the inside filters and coils must be cleaned out before the new sytem is in place.
Get an estimate and then decide or choose another centre which will give a warranty on the compressor and installation. This will worth it as a wrong installation can be ineffficient.
Hope this tip helps.

2001 SUZUKI GRAND VITARA ..S/C BLOWING WARMISH AIR..FIRST SHOP SAID EVERYTHING COMPRESSOR AND ALL THE GOODIES NEEDED TO BE REPLACED AT ABOUT 3200!!..TOOK IT TO ANOTHER PLACE WHO CHECKED AND SAID NO...


AC always leaks freon through the pulley shaft in the compressor.
The best way to hold freon longer, is to use the AC every single month, even in winter, for a few minutes. That helps oil the seals.

If you have not had to replace the freon before, you were just lucky.
It is almost always just the freon.

Not only is the $145 appropriate, but you could have just gotten a can and done it yourself for $20.

And by the way, a whole new compressor is more like $400 plus $100 labor.

What are the steps in replacing the compressor in a 2001 grand vitara I have the compressor


I assume your talking about the A/C compressor. You will need to recover all the refrigerant with the proper equipment. then take the belt off and disconnect the wiring to the clutch. For warranty the drier/reciever is changed too. Also a flush of the system is probably required. Once the system has been flushed out, install new drier/reciever and compressor after adding the proper amount and type of oil. then the system has to be evacuated ( vacum drawn) to remove all the moisture and normal air. Then you can begin adding the refrigerant. If you don't have the proper tools and equipment, this is not a DIY job. failure to do it right may cause damage to the new parts and system failure.
