Hey guys. My wife owns Scion tC. Recently her A/C went out. I tried adding free-on but it wouldn't take a drop.
At my collision shop, we got a mechanic that works with us. The mechanic looked at her car, and told me it's getting a good ground and power. He says my compressor must be out.
After trying oriellys and autozone, I began to worry - as I hate buying parts directly from Toyota (or dealerships in general - they're ridiculous on pricing).
I tried calling a few other places:
B&B - out of business
American? radiator - doesn't carry the compressor either.
Couple of other places I forget the names of - people just gave me their numbers.
Where else should I try to get one?
Or can I buy just the clutch?
When the a/c quit working, it really didn't go out making a noise or anything. So I believe the compressing part of it could still be good. Just a bad clutch or something maybe.
My wife is good to me. Which is why I don't want her burning up in the Texas record heats... Really wanna fix this for her.
