A/C (Air Conditioning)

A proper air conditioning system in your car is a pleasant option to have. The temperature is always right and the windows almost never fog up. There has always been discussion whether A/C really affects fuel consumption on an extensive level, but we like to believe that the benefits outweigh the drawbacks.

What if the A/C system doesn’t work anymore?

First of all you need to find out the source of the problems. Has the A/C still sufficient pressure or may there be a leakage? Or maybe the electronics are at fault? A modern air conditioning system consists of a lot of parts, such as an pump, a radiator, lots of channels, automatic diverter flaps with electric motors on them, a control panel…

What does it cost to remanufacture the A/C parts?

The costs vary a lot, depending on the type of part and the type of manufacturer, but we can clearly state one thing: it’s way cheaper that buying a new part. A/C pumps and A/C panels are the most common parts to be remanufactured, but sometimes even the electric motors from the diverter flaps can be repaired / rebuild / remanufactured.

What reman company should I choose for the repair / remanufacturing of the A/C panel?

Large companies like BBA Reman and ACtronics directly come to mind, also because of their extensive experience, but there are lots of other specialists. Just contact some of them and choose whatever company suits you.
