    1KZ-TE AC Compressor bearing replacement kit

    Worth a look at the thread on here where two compressors were made into one. Search ‘Frankenstein’ and you’ll find it. The ‘nose’ that the bearing sits on can wear if the bearing spins on it.

    HDJ81V Help !

    Honest Mechanic reviews a 40.

    I’ve been watching videos from this guy for a few years. He’s always straight talking and knows his stuff being an independent mechanic all his life. He also happens to be a big Toyota fan.

    Clicking noise in airconditioning

    Hi Mayhem and welcome. Your description of clicking like a worn cam makes me think it’s not directly AC related, but more info is needed to narrow it down. Can you hear the click inside, outside or both? If inside only, it could be a plastic gear jumping teeth on one of the flaps in the air...
