How To Install AC Compressor Video

The AC compressor serves the purpose of converting the low-pressure refrigerant into a high-pressure refrigerant and sends it to the condenser. It is the central component that maintains the pressure difference between the high-and low-pressure sides of the AC mechanism. Proper lubrication is essential to prevent the compressor from premature wear. A bad compressor, of course, will not send the refrigerant under the required pressure, thereby failing to provide optimal cooling to the vehicle. The video below explains the installation of an AC compressor.
