Your BMW has many different systems that allow for a smooth and comfortable ride. Among all the components, the Air Conditioning system plays the important role of providing you with a cool atmosphere while traveling to your destination. The Air Conditioning system involves parts such as the Compressor, Accumulator, Condenser, Evaporator, and Drier. The BMW 128i A/C Accumulator/Drier helps protect the Compressor by preventing liquid refrigerant and debris from being drawn into it. The main job of the Accumulator/Drier is to remove moisture from the refrigerant. Depending on the type of A/C system in your vehicle, it may have either an Accumulator or a Drier.
The Accumulator can be found in an orifice tube whereas the drier will be found in an expansion valve system. The Accumulator/Drier acts as a temporary tank to store the liquid refrigerant. If you find any difference in the working of your A/C system, you need to check the issue as soon as possible. If you do not, it will affect the functioning of the entire Air Conditioning system.
