air conditioning compressor renewel

Postby wolfangel [OP] » August 19th 2013, 11:21am

I live in Spain and my air conditioning compressor needs replacing. The garage says that they cannot get a new one for love or money, and to recondition mine will cost 450 €. Any thoughts or suggestions?

It would depend on the cost of shipping from the states overseas...they aren't exactly light, and a replacement here will run between $200 and 400 depending on the source.
A temporary fix usually becomes a permanent solution, therefore it does not exist.
