Re: Which versions of the AC compressor have people had failures with?

Re: Best practise - Tires and rear Tires life - Rex

I never used winter tires before. I am planning to relocate to a place with snow conditions.
I read winter tires are same size 155 in back and front , even for Rex

So when i install the winter tiers, will i need a new rim for back ? Do 155 and 175 tiers use different rims ? I have 19" wheels.
Thx

Re: Which versions of the AC compressor have people had failures with?

Basically its a issue of presence senor. or its association , that no one is in the car. For me , my habit of t...

Re: Which versions of the AC compressor have people had failures with?

Each time you open and close the door, the AC is turned off.( even if you are in car )
My kids love this activity .....
This constant on/off without time buffers will kill any compressor .
I am not sure what is the need of this "feature ", apart to destroy the compressor.
