Each component in the A/C system is dependent on other parts of the system to operate properly. It is important that each component be of the highest quality, and installed in a clean, well lubricated system in order to ensure proper operation. For example if you open the system to replace the compressor, the system should be flushed and all o-rings and seals replaced, as well as other major components, such as the expansion valve, receiver/drier, and/or orifice tube.
GPD’s “Do It Right The First Time” kits are designed to make sure you have the proper parts to do the repairs. Each kit is customized for the individual application, and designed to provide everything you need to make compressor repair fast, easy, and reliable.
Should I also replace my condenser? Vehicle manufacturers recommend that the condenser be replaced whenever the compressor is replaced. While older Tube & Fin style condensers can technically be flushed, metal shards from a failed compressor can get lodged in the cylindrical tubes and can restrict refrigerant flow, diminishing the heat transfer capabilities of the condenser and A/C system. Newer style, mini-tube condensers cannot be flushed and should always be replaced along with the compressor.
GPD Warranty Information:12 months. IMPORTANT A/C COMPRESSOR WARRANTY NOTE: In order to ensure that proper warranty credit is issued if needed, the compressor installation instructions must be adhered to. All compressors returned for defect must show proof of purchase of an A/C Orifice Tube (or A/C Expansion Valve), A/C Receiver Drier/Accumulator, and A/C System Flush or a Work Order showing the purchase of these items and that the system was flushed.
