The A/C system in your Audi provides a cool breeze during your travels, and makes your journey more comfortable. There are many components involved in the functioning of the Air Conditioning system, such as the Compressor, Condenser, Evaporator, Accumulator, Drier and expansion device. Depending on the model of your car A/C system, it may have either an Accumulator or a receiver Drier. The main responsibility of the A/C Accumulator/Drier is to protect the Compressor from liquid refrigerant. The drier is connected directly to the Evaporator outlet and stores the excess liquid refrigerant.
The Compressor receives the refrigerant liquid, vapor and oil from the Evaporator and separates the vapor. The Vapor is then passed to the Compressor. The A/C Accumulator/Drier is located in the orifice tube system. It absorbs moisture from the refrigerant and it protects your Audi AC system from getting frozen. If you find any problem with functioning of the Audi A/C Accumulator/Drier, it will affect the whole Air Conditioning system.
