Sanden AC Compressor Inspection Procedure




Inspection procedures for the Sanden AC compressor units, how to check for leaks and the levels inside the compressor while on the vehicle. There are a few easy procedures for inspection of the compressor units. The first is the visual inspection which is just to inspect the compressor and see if there are leaks that can be seen by the eye. Next there is the soap bubble test which is where a soapy water is poured over the compressor and the escaping air will create bubbles in the soap. Shops can also use electronic type detectors and they can also do what is know as a dye test where a colored dye is injected into the ac system and it will be extremely noticeable in the system where it is leaking.

When the oil level is suspected to be low it should be checked with the whole system intact and fully charged.
