  • All products are intended for use with either R12 or R134a. Evidence of exposure to any other refrigerant will void the guarantee.
  • Evidence of failure due to lack of lubrication voids the guarantee.
  • This product guarantee applies only to the purchased product, and does not include or extend to peripheral system components (accumulator/drier, expansion valve, hoses, etc.) unless purchased through Auto Compressor World.

Installation Instructions

BASIC COMPRESSOR INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS

WARNING:  COMPRESSOR OIL NOT INCLUDED.  THIS COMPRESSOR DOES NOT HAVE OIL. FAILURE TO ADD OIL TO THE COMPRESSOR AND A/C SYSTEM VOIDS WARRANTY.

NOTE: Failure to properly install this compressor will void your warranty.

Always practice safe workmanship:

  • Wear proper eye protection
  • Work in a well ventilated area
  • Wear skin protection (gloves)
  • Properly recover refrigerant before replacing parts

Follow original vehicle manufacturer’s recommendations to ensure proper installation.

Many vehicle systems can adversely affect A/C performance. Before beginning A/C system repairs, make sure vehicle cooling system functions properly. Check belts, cooling fans, fan clutches, idlers, and tensioners, and replace worn or malfunctioning components. Make sure the electrical system that feeds the A/C compressor has proper voltage.

Carefully choose all chemicals used during A/C compressor replacement. Always use only the correct amount and viscosity of refrigerant oil. Drain all oil from replacement compressor and refill with correct oil fill quantity. All vehicle manufacturers recommend oil balancing – some of the overall system oil quantity should go inside the compressor, with slight amounts added to the new drier and evaporator. FOLLOW RECOMMENDED O.E. SUGGESTIONS ON OIL BALANCING to ensure proper system performance and extended compressor life. Additionally, only use refrigerant from a reputable source, since inferior grades of refrigerant are now currently sold in our market.

Make sure the replacement compressor makes even contact with the mounting bracket. Damaged brackets must be either repaired or replaced to ensure proper fit on the vehicle.

When installing compressor mount bolts, always loosely install all bolts before tightening, then tighten evenly to specified torque.

Always replace the filter drier or accumulator. Failure to change the drier or accumulator will void compressor warranty.

Always replace the orifice tube. The screens on the orifice tube are minute, and can easily be clogged by debris. If the orifice tube is in a liquid line, then replace entire liquid line.

Expansion valves should be removed, inspected, and replaced if any evidence of debris is found.

Catastrophic failure of a compressor usually results in a system full of debris. On vehicles equipped with a parallel flow condenser, the condenser design prevents proper cleaning, and must be replaced.

Make sure all A/C system components are free of debris. Flush all hoses with an approved flush solvent, and make sure all residual flush is removed before continuing with system repair.

After system has been thoroughly cleaned and replacement parts properly installed, evacuate and charge the system. Follow recommended vehicle manufacturer’s instructions on required refrigerant charge. DO NOT OVERCHARGE.

Use a leak detector to inspect the vehicle for leaks.

NOTE: Always replace any o-ring or seal if disturbed during vehicle repair.
