Honda HR-V: A/C Compressor Removal and Installation

Removal & Installation


  • Do not install the A/C compressor into a system unless you are completely sure that the system is free of contamination. Installing the A/C compressor into a contaminated system can result in premature A/C compressor failure.
  • If the A/C compressor is marginally operable, run the engine at idle speed, and let the air conditioning work for a few minutes, then shut the engine off.

7. All Removed Parts - Install

  1. Install the parts in the reverse order of removal, and note these items:
    • Inspect the A/C lines for any signs of contamination.
    • If you are installing a new A/C compressor, you must calculate the amount of refrigerant oil to be removed from it. A new A/C compressor comes with a full charge of oil.
    • New O-rings should be used at each fitting. Prior to installation, apply a thin coat of the same refrigerant oil used in the A/C compressor. Be sure to use the correct O-rings for HFC-134a (R-134a) to avoid leakage.
    • To avoid contamination, do not return the oil to the container once dispensed, and never mix it with other kind of refrigerant oils.
    • Immediately after using the oil, reinstall the cap on the container, and seal it to avoid moisture absorption.
    • Do not spill the refrigerant oil on the vehicle, because it may damage painted surfaces. If refrigerant oil contacts the paint, wash it off with water immediately.
    • Charge the system with the specified amount of R-134a refrigerant.
