Hi just bought a second hand i20 asta, car is good runs beautifully done only 46k kms, but for ac compressor seized after few days of use. I read lot of reviews on net & found that ac of i20 is underpowered & need some upgrade.
just want to know if any members from TAI community had done some change or upgraded to any new compressor or fitting.

Used compressor from i20? No way. Just modified the complete system, switched to used sanden 505 compressor & got rid of every problem, now cooling is awesome & the best part is didn't cost too much.

Hi Nanhi, Can you post some details.. How did you swap the compressor since the pipe flanges would be totally different also the mount points are different.

Any pics ?

Hi
Changed the mounting, compressor pulley, belt & got pipe welded with flanges.
As for cost mounting pulley 1500( with belt & pulley) compressor 2500 labour 2000 total cost 6000 , but it was worth. Now awesome cooling with very little load on engine .
