i didn't research much on aircon previously, just that suddenly i felt that compressor noise is very annoying especially during listening to my ICE..
I doubt the noise is from compressor as it could hardly be related to the ICE system.

Is the Myvi air con compressor that bad. I have a few colleague with Mvyi but never heard them say anything about compressor noise??
Agree that Myvi has less problem on the compressor part. Mostly it encounters the heat distribution issues.

who say no alternative? never read Myviclub.com? lol. You can use Avanza's piston-type compressor. I am using it now, damn cold even under hot sun, as long as vehicle is moving. of course idling its not so cold, but still colder than original. Avanza is a bigger car.. so air con also colder.
can't remember was between rm150-250. work was about 3-4 hours..they will change all the oil, and also test the compressor, and refill gas if required. very professional. although they deal in high end cars, Lexus, Altezzas, Veilfires.. their staff are friendly and I feel the price I paid is reasonable.
wow.. Myvi uses Avanza's piston-type compressor?!
Just curious how it is modified (i.e. bracket, hoses...) ?
It consumes more power from your engine if compared to original compressor, doesn't it?This post has been edited by cheelam: Nov 23 2011, 02:30 PM
