Holden Rodeo Aircon O-Rings Seals
Recently we replaced the Air Conditioning O-ring seals on the compressor fittings on a Holden Rodeo.
This Holden Rodeo was booked in for a mobile regas service with us. The owner had complained that the air conditioning wasn’t cooling enough. After the performance and leak testing of the aircon system, we discovered the air conditioning O-ring seals on the Compressor fittings was leaking. It can be a common fault on the Holden Rodeo air conditioning Compressor fitting O-ring seals to leak.
Once we replaced the Holden Rodeo Aircon O-Rings seals and completed the air conditioning service which includes a deep vacuum to remove spent gases and moisture. A vacuum leak test follows this before regassing. We then regas the Holden Rodeo air conditioner to the manufacturer specifications.
Oil is top up as well as Ultraviolet dye installed. Finally, the air conditioning system is comprehensively re-tested to check the overall performance. Now the Holden Rodeo has icy cold air conditioning once again.
CAR AIR CONDITIONER O’RINGS
O-rings seals are one of the most common seals used in Automotive Air Conditioning system design. Because they are inexpensive, easy to make, reliable, and have simple mounting requirements.
The O-rings on your vehicle air conditioning system should get inspected and replaced to ensure refrigerant contained, and the Air Conditioning system is working to full potential.
YOUR CAR AIR CONDITIONING SYSTEM IS MADE UP OF MANY WORKING PARTS LIKE:
• Compressor. It’s situated in the front of the vehicle and is responsible for putting the refrigerant under pressure. It acts to compress the gas to the point of around 250 psi and increase the temperature at the same time.
• Condenser. A radiator-like component that the gas moves through once it has been heated up. Inside the condenser, the gas is converted to a liquid as the heat removed.
• Receiver Drier. Takes out the water that has entered the system. Without this measure, the unit can form ice crystals, which can damage the air conditioning unit.
• Expansion Valve. It changes the system from high pressure to low pressure. It’s where things shift from hot to cold.
• Evaporator. It’s responsible for pulling the refrigerant into the void, where the gas then becomes cold.
At Keepin’ Cool, our fully qualified air conditioning technicians can give you a detailed report on the condition of the AC system and help you out with any necessary repairs and maintenance. We want to get your car air-con working to its optimal performance.
