Borrego A/C Compressor Replacement
It seems like that, just because the compressor gets noisy, doesn't necessarily mean that it is about to fail. Mine has been noisy for the last 10K miles, but, it still cools just fine. My dealer and a independent automotive A/C repair shop both recommended running it until it stops cooling. They both said the repair/replace cost would be the same because they have to replace the compressor, dryer and (probably) the expansion valve whether I fix it now or after it fails. I am just going to driving mine for a while longer.
This is the first time anything has went wrong with my Borrego since I bought it new in 2009.
