A/C Compressor Noise Concern
This revised bulletin replaces information published on 5/23/2007, Climate Control – 010. It readdresses some 2006 – 2008 Sedona (VQ) that may exhibit a knocking noise (mainly at idle) during A/C operation. A new redesigned A/C compressor Disc & Hub with better dampening characteristics can be retrofitted to these vehicles A/C compressors to eliminate the concern. This new design Disc & Hub assembly can be applied to any 2006 – 2008 Sedona (VQ) manufactured before January 16, 2008 that exhibits this concern and hasn’t had the current new redesigned Disc & Hub installed.
Please note that there are two (2) redesigned Disc & Hub assemblies, the first of which is no longer supplied. In some cases KMA has found that the first redesign did not effectively address all customer concerns. The current redesigned Disc & Hub should be used in these cases, even if the first redesigned Disc & Hub had been tried.
As of 7/17/2008, only the current redesigned Disc & Hub is being shipped from all parts Distribution Centers. The part number has not changed between the first and current redesigned Disc & Hub. To order the current redesign Disc & Hub, use PN 97644-4D900FFF.
