1996 - 2002 Chevy ~ GMC Replacement AC Compressor

The General Motors HT6 compressor, used on 1996-2002 Pickups (Silverado, Sierra), Suburban, and Yukon is one of the most troublesome compressors ever. With 4 'free-floating' sections, meaning the pieces are not internally pinned, the compressor tends to twist, creating a leak point.

TechChoice Parts has the solution. Our 10601N (Here) replacement compressor is manufactured by Sanden-Behr. Internally, the compressor is similar to a Nippondenso compressor; with 5 pistons, 10 cylinders. Not only does this operate quieter and more efficiently, but it has internal locating pins to keep the compressor sections aligned, so it will not leak.
