The dealership tells me my compressor is “going out”. It takes unusually long to blow cool air after start up. Does anyone have any experience with ordering a compressor from a reliable online provider of OEM or OE spec parts? I see Motorcars Ltd, Car Parts Warehouse, Parts.Jaguar Paramus and others, and the prices vary from $299 - $814. Who should I not purchase it from?
Is there any particular reason I should only have the dealership do the work compared to an experienced local mechanic that will charge me much less?
