Today we completed a Subaru Forester SH9 Compressor and Drier replacement
The Subaru Forester came into us because the air conditioning wasn’t working. After pressure testing the system and inspecting for leaks we discovered that there were multiple issues in the AC System, we found that multiple components needed to be replaced including the Compressor and Drier. We also had to replace the desiccant bag, service valves and cabin filter as a result of consequential damage caused by the failure of the major components.
The compressor is the workhorse of the air conditioning system, powered by a drive belt connected to the crankshaft of the engine. When the aircon system is turned on, the compressor pumps refrigerant vapour under high pressure to the condenser.
The cabin filter (also known as pollen filter) is a feature on most modern vehicles. It cleans the air that comes into the interior of the car and filters out pollen, dust and other airborne material.
Once we replaced the various components we completed an AC Service which includes a re-gas with R134A gas and UV dye. Now the Subaru Forester SH9 has icy cold air conditioning for summer!
