    Lancer Box

    popping an old threat... thought of a power steering conversion on my lancer box (4G12) if L200 P/S box fits, what is the model year?
  4. yes I meant da clutch drive plate (shown in da image) which engages with da compressor
  5. Yes I meant clutch drive plate which engages with da compressor
  6. I had experience with the same. in my case the noise is bcz f damaged 'clutch drive plate assembly' which is comnly knwn as 'pulley'. this is due to worn out bearing which hasn't taken care of

    A/c Not Working At Idle

    Need help from experts & owners who experienced same situation before. My car is Kia Rio(2003 model) Continuous rattling noise came from engine bay from compressor and it was compressor clutch plate. As suggested by A/C technician I replaced, 1.Compressor clutch plate 2.Pulley assembly 3.Bearing 4.A/C hose (since there was a leak-confirmed by dye test) 5.Filled gas Now I've noticed that the AC will no longer blow cold air if I've been idling too long (either parked, sitting in traffic, at a long traffic light, etc.) Once I start driving again, it cools back down like normal. Now technician is suggesting me to replace compressor which will cost me 17,500/- (reconditioned), 34,000/- (brand new) Already I've spent 12,000/- regarding this issue. Now i'm bit confused and seeking some advice on 'what to do' ?
