When it comes to buying AC Compressors and related components there can be a lot of options out there. I understand it can all be a little bit confusing, so let me describe each option available for your vehicle.
OEM New With Clutch
This is the OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) AC Compressor. This is the exact compressor your car had when it was first driven off the lot. This is the same compressor you would buy at the dealership, but we sell it for a fraction of their price.
Reman with Clutch
“Reman” stands for Remanufactured. This is the original unit that had issues and then got rebuilt. I do highly recommend some remanufactured auto parts, but AC Compressors are not one of them.
Pro Tip – For just a little more money you can get a brand new OEM AC Compressor. A new AC Compressor is well worth it.
Hope this helps,
