An automotive compressor can fail for a number of reasons but when it does there are no shortcuts to fixing your system. When the compressor fails it can spread small metal contaminants through the system and cause blockages. For this reason it is common practise and a warranty requirement from the compressor manufacturers to replace the thermal expansion valve and receiver drier and clean out any contaminants from the system whenever a new compressor is fitted. We follow these industry procedures and warranty requirements as a minimum standard so that you can be confident your system is repaired to the highest standards.
Your air conditioning compressor is often referred to as the heart of your A/C, it keeps the whole system running and compresses refrigerant gas before sending it down to the condenser.
