Air Conditioning Compressor Replacement

An engine-driven fan belt powers the air conditioning compressor, which is mounted on the engine.

To replace the air conditioning compressor, the air conditioning system refrigerant is flushed and the high pressure lines to the compressor are removed. The compressor is detached from the engine and replaced with the new compressor. Compressor lubricant and the refrigerant are replaced.

The AC system should be operated at least once a month to circulate the refrigerant—even during the winter. The AC system operates at very high pressures. Special tools and knowledge are needed to work on it; this work must be carried out by competent, trained technicians.
