Question

Hi Guys,

I own a Toyota Premio 2010 which i personally got down from japan, few months back the a/c started to give problems, The A/c suddenly stops working and it starts working again after few minutes, I went to Toyota Lanka and they changed a unit in the A/C stating that it is a small issuw which comes in premios and i got a bill around 20,000 LKR. Now after two months from the repair the problem had came up again.

Any ideas or any experiance from premio users?

Thanking in advance.

its common issue for 260 allion & premios..when u accelerate bit rough itz going to working again..most of the times itz because of a compressor problem(theres a valve )..may be you have to replace the compressor.or valve..if you had to replace the valve it will cost u around 15000/= if its compressor it will cost u around 100000/= (if its from toyota lanka 300000/=) but im suggesting you to replace the compressor with recon toyota 121 or 240 allion one.. (i had the same problem with my brothers 260 allion)

Never ever do that. 121 and 240 compressors are clutch driven and the 260 compressors are clutch-less variable displacement. 260 compressors tend to fail. When that happens some cheap asses bypass the electronics, gets a recon 121/240 compressor modifies it and fits it. Its larger compared to clutch-less compressor so will need some modifications. But believe me it won’t last long and will probably fall apart on the long run. Also it won’t give the same efficiency as the original compressor. So if the issue really is due to a failing compressor your best bet is to replace with a Jap recon 260 compressor. About a year ago, I replaced mine for 33,000/= including labour.

I'm posting the details here for every ones convenience. Mods please remove if this is against forum rules.

The place I've got the recondition compressor is Mistaire Services (pvt) Ltd.

48/A, Anagarika Dharmapala Mawatha, Dehiwala

0777 315 922 or 0112 761 613

The 33,500 is for the Compressor, filter, o-ring, ref.oil, vacuum, re-gas and labour, but that was about an year ago. According to BMW it has increased to about 40k. But first take your vehicle and inspect the AC system before getting a new compressor.

Hi , 

I also had the same kind of a problem in my Premio and got the compressor valve replaced by Toyota Lanka after paying Rs. 23,000. But got the problem again. Then I consulted Lalith Aircon at Maharagama who imports lot of auto Ac parts. He had the ND Japanese made compressor with the same part number for 60 K which I bought. altogether it cost me around 70 K.  Running ok for last  8 months now.
