Recently we completed a Toyota Prado Compressor, Cabin Filter and Desiccant Bag replacement

This Toyota Prado came into us because the air conditioning wasn’t working. After pressure testing the system and inspecting for leaks we discovered the Compressor, Cabin Filter and Desiccant Bag needed replacing.

The compressor is the workhorse of the air conditioning system. It is powered by a drive belt connected to the crankshaft of the engine. When the air con system is turned on, the compressor pumps refrigerant vapour under high pressure to the condenser.

The cabin filter and desiccant bag are two types of filters that can get clogged up with debris, dust and moisture over time. Some symptoms of of blocked cabin filters are reduced airflow or unusual smells coming from the AC. 

Your car air conditioning system is made up of lots of loads of working parts like:

  • Compressor
  • Condensor
  • Receiver Drier
  • Expansion Valve
  • Evaporator
  • Hoses
  • Cabin Filter

Once we replaced the Compressor, Cabin Filter and Desiccant Bag, the technicians completed an AC Service which includes a re-gas with R134A gas and UV dye.  Now the Toyota Prado has fresh, icy cold air conditioning.

If you are having problems with your vehicle’s air conditioning system, the team at Accelerate Auto Electrics can help. Our expert technicians can diagnose, repair or replace AC systems in all makes and models of vehicles.
