Air Conditioning Receiver Drier
START YOUR SHOPPING HERE
drier is the filter on the A/C system. Some vehicles
have an accumulator and some have a receiver drier, but
either way the internals do the same thing. A new
drier is required every time you change the compressor,
no exceptions. Inside a drier is a desiccant
element that pulls moisture and debris from the system.
Remember that moisture from water is very bad, it alters
the viscosity and can ruin a system.
Just like you wouldn't change your engine oil without
changing your oil filter, the same is true on A/C
systems. You want that drier cleaning your system to
ensure long lasting performance. You definitely
do not want that old drier dumping debris back
into the system.
