The BMW 323 A/C Accumulator/Drier is one of the main component which protect the Compressor by not allowing moisture and debris to contaminate it. The Accumulator/Drier receives refrigerant, Vapor and Oil from the Evaporator and stores it. The primary function of the Accumulator/Drier is to separate Vapor from liquid and Oil, and pass Vapor to the Compressor. The Accumulator/Drier contains a desiccant to remove moisture and filter out dirt. According to the type of vehicle, an A/C system may have either an Accumulator or a Drier.
Even though Accumulator and Drier have the same purpose, a Drier is connected to the Condenser outlet of the high pressure side and an Accumulator is attached to the Evaporator outlet of the low pressure side. If you feel your A/C system is acting strangely, you should check the issue to protect your car's Air Conditioning system.
