I'm normally very easy going but my dealer is getting to me!! I bought an 06 AC 500 auto. Had problems they took care of it, But it took 3 weeks to get oil seals in to fix it. Then I had to take it back because they didn't put a new gasket on the clutch housing and it leaked oil. Been 2 weeks and still no gasket. IS THIS LONG OF A WAIT ON PARTS FROM AN AC DEALER NORMAL?I dunno

Could be, that's why many use online AC part retailers like Country cat, Babbits or many others. Find one that has the parts needed in stock and they can get it shipped out right away

gotta say my dealer is pretty quick when ordering stuff. 3-5 days usually.

three days max, as little as next day if I order over the phone before noon.

This is in Quebec, Canada though. I'm not sure if this makes a difference.

I've never had to wait long at all. They have a fair inventory, but when they do have to order something it's usually quick. As long as I let them know by Tuesday the parts will be in by the weekend.

My dealer was good at getting parts, but he was dropped as a dealer so now I have none in my area.

I use Country Cat now for parts.
