A/C compressor part #

had my a/c tested and my a/c compressor is shot. no loss of freon. not having any luck with the auto part stores as far as finding a new one.. a truck shop wants me to bring my mh in in, then they would order the part. iwe live in our mh full time and i don't want to be stuck in their lot for who knows how long until they find a replacement. can anyone tell me the part number for this compressor? thanks

Click this LINK for a compressor for your Workhorse chassis.

It is a Delphi part with part number CS0120-11B1. It is very common and you can buy it almost anywhere. For example, click HERE. Summit racing has them in stock and has a price of $280.

If your AC guy couldn't find this maybe you should find a different AC guy.

again, thanks for the info. i'm not a mechanic, so i've called a few garages for estimates. one garage said one to two days of labor. i think a person could get a heart transplant faster than that. another shop mentioned replacing the compressor, dryer, and an orifice tube. my questions to my fellow rver's-- what parts are generally replaced when the compressor is shot? also can anyone give me a rough idea of how many hours the entire job should take? i don't mind the repair costs, but i don't want to pay for someones college tuition.

I think the parts you mentioned are reasonable. 2 days seems excessive. I would think 8 hours should do it for any reasonably competent AC guy. Have you tried shops that specialize in automobile air conditioning service?

Hello, A/C work is very expensive. If the compressor is truly bad then the system will need to be flushed and a new orifice tube installed if it has one and a new filter drier. Not cheap by any means. Get a second opinion by all means, if the system is low on freon it also will not work but means you have a leak but is cheaper than replacing the compressor and associated components. Good luck and let us know the outcome.

there is no leak. it's been tested. can someone explain where all the labor hours are going? i'm not disputing your estimate at 8 hours, i would like to know where the time goes. i'm still checking several shops. a couple shops seemed in awe because it is a motorhome, instead of a truck and did not want to do the work even though they advertise a/c repairs. is there something i'm missing as far as a difference between a pickup truck and motorhome a/c replacement?

The difference is that often working on motorhomes requires them to come into your house (the motorhome). It is difficult to do the work without getting something dirty. On motorhomes the nuts and bolts can be hard to reach. Some bolts/nuts can be reached from the top...some from the bottom and others with special tools.

It is just more difficult in some cases.

Do you know why the compressor is bad? It is rare for a compressor to be bad and still have refrigerant. Maybe it just needs refrigerant?

Year back, maybe 15, I had a vehicle that the bearing\clutch for the compressor went out and a couple of shops said that the entire compressor must be replaced, system evacuated and recharged with quite a few hours of labor (not that I remember how many). In any case and perhaps this is true for many A/C compressors, I was able to replace the bearing and electric clutch without removing the compressor or losing any refrigerant.

Point being, there may be other options, can you provide further details as to the problem and what the A/C shop said (other than the compressor is "shot", more detail in regards to what in particular in the compressor is shot, perhaps just the clutch?) ~CA

Change one idler and put on a shorter belt and you can do away with the AC compressor. When you get the new one change the idler back.

Had a mobile mechanic replace mine at my storage facility about 18 months ago. Total cost was about $550 for compressor and labor. Compressor was a Chinese knock-off that he got from local NAPA store. Took him about two hours start to finish.
