I cannot find my 2006 post, but the complete system on my 2002 crv with 60k miles went out in 2006, black death I think they call it back then. My dealer, in 2006, said this was a known problem and that a certain number of customers would be taken care by Honda corp. based on several factors, long time Honda owners, car serviced at your dealer, etc. and at various percent replacement. At that time I did own two honda's and did all my service on both cars at the dealer. I did have to call Honda but my dealer negotiated a 100% replacement for me, others only parts, some nothing. All from the same dealer.
Still driving my 2002 crv with 140k miles, no other ac problems to date. Also own two other later model accords. Same dealer says the time has long passed for any Honda kick-in money other than the current class action suit. Honda Corp. has successfully managed to keep this well known dealer fact out of the main stream news and now that the cars are so old with high mileage it would not cause a public relations nightmare anyway.

My 2004 Honda CRV A/C gaveup on 110K miles. Local mechanic diagnosed as AC compressor is bad as nothing is getting circulated. Found this compressor on eBay for $150 (Including shiping). Brand new, thirdparty and one year gurantee...thinking of paying someone to get it replced. 2K, 3K for replacements is outright scary..

Hi, I own a 2007 CR-V and my A/C stopped blowing cold air a few months ago. I took it to the dealer and they replaced a Relay? It appeared to be fixed but only lasted a couple of months. It is not working again. It blows air but HOT air only. All of the lights appear to be working. The dealer seems only interested in changing the Relay.

I just got back from the dealer a second time for AC problems. The first time was $850 to replace the condenser with aftermarket. The latest time (6 weeks later) was to replace the compresser. I was quoted $1200 and asked them to call Honda corporate since a known issue. Got the cost down to $960. I am frustrated with the compresser since this is the second replacement with OEM. The first one died at 5 years and 39K miles. The second at 10 years and 96K. I have an '02 and thought the replacements were redesigned to correct the defect? At least the problem was external and didn't trash the system with metal shavings.

Hi, We also had to replace the compressor on our 2002 Honda twice, at only 60000 and 65000 miles respectively. I have the form to fill out for the
lawsuit but cannot locate the compressor part#. Can you tell me what Part# you used?

We have the form to submit to Honda, in connection with the lawsuit regarding failing compressors, but cannot find the Compressor Part# that we need to put on form. Does anyone with a 2002 Honda CRV, manual, AWD, have this part#?
