Default Is This A Good Deal? (AC work)

$236 to replace ac compressor and dryer with evac and freon refill. was attempting to replace the compressor myself but having a hard time loosening the 14mm ac belt tensioner bolt its starting to round so I stopped trying. Wanna gonna buy a 6 point and double wrench it off but now im thinking it'll be easier to just let em do it as much as it pains me. According to the mechanic its 1 hour for the compressor and 2 for the dryer then the rest is to pay for the evac and refill. Evac really isn't needed as there is nothing in my system as it as. Had aamco check it. I already bought all the parts.

The price sounds fair to me.

Most people would pay more than that for the compressor alone.

I take it this is not a new compressor. Is there any warranty, at least 90 days?

You're getting 3 hours plus in labor...most labor rates around here are at $125/hr or more...I think it's a decent price.

Don't know much about pricing, just be careful with that tensioner belt bolt, if you break that you'll be without your car until you get a new one. Took Nissan 3 days to get one in for me and @officerfrasher ordered one and it took them 3 days to get him one as well.

No the compressor is not new but it does come with a 6 month warranty. I'm going to just let em do it. Thanks guys. It's 59 an hour for labor with my discount. Hopefully I'm back to cold air soon Haha

Well as it turned out the guys at AAMCO had no clue what they were doing. I might not had even needed a replacement compressor because when I went to get it changed it still wouldnt engage so the guys at the shop diagnosed and fixed it, I had a short. Guy at the shop was great, didnt charge me for the extra labor in fixing the short since he felt bad that I was led astray by a previous shop. Next time I go there first.
