The automotive AC system has many components, such as compressor, condenser, receiver switch and evaporator. The compressor is a key component of the car's air conditioning system, Compressor takes the refrigerant (ac gas) compresses it and pass it on to the evaporator. The compressor includes a variety of internal parts that, of course, can wear out or fail over time. Sometimes the compressor seals can fail, in this case the compressor needs to be replaced as the seals cannot replace themselves.
In other cases, the AC pistons, valves, bearings, or clutch may need to be replaced. This may be the best option to replace the entire AC compressor, as it may be cheaper than replacing individual parts. Additionally, the parts are likely to have been affected by other faulty parts, as debris may have circulated through the system. Depending on the brand, it may be necessary to replace the system orifice tube and receiver dryer when replacing the AC compressor.
If you have any problems with the AC system, it is recommended that you inspect the AC system and the AC compressor and, if necessary, replace the AC compressor. Since the AC compressor is particularly prone to wear over time, it should always be repaired as outlined in your car manufacturer's guidelines.
