Then when he took it apart, it was a clean failure and no metal pieces in the system. Thankfully, I still had 2,000 more miles before my warranty went out but I can't believe that there are so many other 2013 Altima drivers that are having the same issue! The hose to the compressor rubs against the frame of the car until it wears a hole in it thus causing the unit to leak and lose pressure. I do not think that the compressor froze up, but I really don't know. Its 100 degrees in Texas, the ac does not work at all and the car has been parked. I've filed a complaint with Nissan and hopefully they will respond with a fair decision. Do it on your own risk. After 5 days they decided they would split the cost with me.
With such a design flaw, I'm wondering if Nissan will be willing to address this concern. Took me a while to figure out what it was. Auto repair shop prices are set by each shop and may be different than price ranges estimated here - particularly if the scope of work varies from that described here. I am just going to suck it up and pay for the repair through Honda again the discount comes into play because from what I am reading Nissan is lucky to cover even half the cost of this repair- which is not pocket change. I purchased the car because of its supposed reliability; What a crock.
I'll be upside down with the trade-in, but I do need to get rid of this car! He takes me into his shop where I notice it's like nice and cool. It was very convenient at the time. I tried a search, but came up empty. Additional refrigerant may be necessary. I know I will need someone to claim the freon from the existing compressor and receiver? My friend said its the clutch, fusses are and wiring are good told by merchants.

They basically told me that I, or someone else had tried to charge the system and overcharged it. I know there is another part I need to change but cannot recall the name before I remove them and have the new system charged once complete. Had to contact Nissan regional customer relations person in Tenn. I went ahead and replaced the belt while I was in there. I cut it like you did but still stripped it so I cut deeper and split the bolt head right off.
Compressor shaft was spinning normally wasn't locked up. I've had my car for only 3 years, but have just over 65K miles. We only got the part after we called Nissan headquarters, wrote letters and emails and the part was then expedited to the dealership. I definitly have a major beef with my ac compresor the clutch makes that ticking sound everyonce in a while im just waiting for it to freeze up. He told me they had zero 2013 Altima compressors and they are on back order.
I had to borrow one to get around as I didn't know what they would do if anything. Do it on your own risk. If I'm parked or idling at a stop light it blows luke-warm air. We'll see how long it lasts. It failed about a year and a half ago.
Cost to Replace Nissan Altima Ac Compressor - Notes Cost estimates are based on industry average productivity levels for the repair and local labor rates charged by experienced automotive professionals. Only had 42k on my Altima when ac quit working. We'll see if Nissan wishes me to be a repeat customer or not. Why not give it a try. We got it recharged because it was low on freon. His vehicle is still under warranty.
It was October 07 when that happened and I was in the process of moving from Atlanta to Denver. Based on the many other complaints of the same type, I expect the worst. We basically had to buy the part from Nissan and wait several months for the part to arrive. Get decent long snapring pliers. I am beyond mad and this will be my only and last Nissan I own- ever!.
I have had many issues with this car from the start and cannot wait to get rid of it which is too bad because it is a sharp looking car. The absolutely have a problem. Soon it started blowing warm air no matter what speed, then would go cold for a minute, then warm. I wanted to thank the dealer for taking care of me in this instance. Then we tested the connector signal using multimeter- works well. I finally took it back to the shop.
Think I will take it to dealership before I order this part and have them look at it. Capture and dispose of existing refrigerant. These estimates show a range of fair prices for your vehicle and geographic area. I have a 2004 ford ranger. It would take about 5 to 10 min to cool off car. Sometimes it works right off the bat, other times it takes 20 minutes to kick in. I don't think I'll be buying Nissan again.
