Car a/c service needed

Post by sometimewoodworker » October 30, 2018, 12:26 pm

I am looking for a car A/C repair place and haven't found anything using in the search function so would like recommendations. Udon or south would be good e.g. kumpawape.

thanks

I used this repair shop just recently to replace the evaporator in the dash of my Toyota.

Shop is not well signed is diagonally opposite the lights (where the two planes are) heading to Khon Kaen you drive into an open air service bay very limited English but knows what he is on about and not expensive I think it is appropriately named "hot air"

No that is a different shop virtually right at the lights on the left heading out of the city I think just prior there is a vacant block, his open space would hold 4+ cars it is under cover and his shop has a big door on the side

FWIW I went to the 1st place this morning, mysteriously the air-conditioning seem to be working with no problem at all. They did check everything but as no repairs needed no charge.

They sent me to the shop next door who fitted my car camera and repaired the cigarette lighter switch, all done in about an hour for a total of 400 Baht, possibly a little high but I felt reasonable and he did an excellent job. The electrical man (or the a/c shop) did say that they have a couple of foreign customers and asked the name of my referral but I only know screen names.

I later went to the Nissan dealer further down the street to get a second electronic key, they also couldn't say why the AC cut out as every thing is OK now.

Thanks for the help.

I am looking for a car A/C repair place and haven't found anything using in the search function so would like recommendations. Udon or south would be good e.g. kumpawape.

thanks

Reet here we go ,the Maxis shop where you bought your battery ,100 yards further to kumphawapi on the same side as Maxis is a big A/C place ,on first glance it looks like house A/C but in the back is a car truck service department , ( i don't know what they're prices are like , ) there are many little a/c service garages around,(if you know what to look for ,i ask ) the one i used to use ,is on the frontage RD ( 2)about 500 yards before the traffic lights for the Kumphawapi turn ,but it's difficult to describe the shop , you could always pull in and ask ,
