55 reg Aircon compressor gap needed

Recommended Posts

Hi

aircon playing up. Started a year or two ago and was failing in really hot weather. Red light on button blinking. Plenty of gas in there. Worked less and less. Run for 10 mins and quit etc. 

I know there is a gap for the clutch to operate. 

Anyone have any info or isometrics etc

cheers

This issue has come up many times and the solution is a slightly thicker thrust washer. Use the search function  - one previous post had a diagram of what needs to be done.

Thanks 

have found it but by looking down on the compressor it looks different hence my question. 

Thanks

From the Toyota Repair manual:

0.45mm + 0.15mm - 0.10mm.  Shown measured with a clock gauge on the pressure plate, and taking the difference between disengaged and engaged.

Adjust using shims of 0.1mm, 0.3mm and 0.5mm.

Does it say shaft diameter and washer outside diameter to use

Unfortunately not.

I don't suppose Toyota or the actual OE (Denso?) happen to sell a shim set or repair kit to save sourcing individual shims?

A repair kit is available from Toyota - part number 88335-14020. Just check your VIN in the parts list or with your dealer just to ensure that there is no variability in part number against VIN's

Telephoned Toyota Newport South Wales

you guessed it - they didn’t bother

will go to Cardiff from now on.

Pretty much the same experience locally, i’d call in, but unfortunately they removed the parts desk as it’s not considered customer facing, if you walk in the dealership and ask for parts, they send a man with a pencil, it’s a cringeworthy experience.

Changed dealer and got it sorted, £1.64 and available in 2 days, not as horrific as expected.

Hodgson Toyota in Gateshead, I doubt they’ve done me any favours, so that should be retail. I’ll collect Saturday morning and see what happens.

Currently 22c and stuck doing 200 miles with that on the seat next to me. I fully expect Snow tomorrow when I get to fit them 😂

    1. 1. If you were to consider buying a Hybrid model over 5 years old, would you be worried about the reliability of the Hybrid system?


      • Not really as Hybrid systems are always reliable
      • Not if it had a Manufacturers Warranty on the Hybrid system
      • I would not buy a Hybrid model over 5 years old
