AC Compressor How to Replace Part 2 of 2 Complete Guide ES300 Avalon Camry

by birtanpublished on August 24, 2020

There's a 95 Toyota Camry v6 so we're gonna be working on the AC compressor when you look at the AC compressor there's your problem go get some more speed runs in there the belt was what was melting so oldest but anyone who knows on this is why mechanics hate

Engineers there is an AC or a line that directly blocks at so you got to open the system by pulling this AC line apart and get it out of the way before you can pull the other bolt Ryan's mobile one today on brands Mobil 1 we're doing part

Two of two a repair video on this Camry 1995 3 litre v6 we're gonna open another door here with a screwdriver and kick this guy out rattles do on the fish button releases right here I'll push that down and then you can pop it out

It's easier to do with a screwdriver and try to get your finger in there as we said the bolts to get the compressor off or blocked by the lines you got pull the lines before we do the lines you got to evacuate the system if you need to

Evacuate the system make sure you do that at a shop you can pay them to recover all the refrigerator and then make sure to evacuate before you charge it again so the vacuum pump you can get those I've got a link in the description

Here's where the high side is your Ivers side just right above the receiver dryer if you're replacing a compressor especially if there's been a failure it's a really good idea to replace the receiver driver as well it's basically

Like the oil filter for the air conditioning system again make sure you get a shop to do all the refrigerant out of it and then it won't be spraying in your face when you do one of these like a shook up root beer

If you put pressure on the lid this being the lid in this case anyway we're gonna pull that out it helps you don't have to wrap it in paper towel but it helps I do both sides know what you don't have to worry about contamination

Getting in there just don't want chunks of stuff getting in where it ought to be this is the main one that you have to get before you can get the compressor off and like I say you have to take them off anyway if that bolt on the bottom

Side is right behind it if you're reusing your o-rings and maybe are it's a good idea to pull it out real straight and not be rough with it as it's coming out that can cause a leak later this is being reused so we got to

Keep everything somewhat sterile twist it turn it over shove it in the hole you have a screwdriver something to pack it with go for it however make sure you don't cut it and create debris out of the paper towel you want it to remain in

One piece so when you ink it it all comes out as 100 we're just gonna get this I'm done a budget how many times you hit the back end of your ratchet if you do it too many times you know it's like carpal tunnel kind of crap going on

Nobody's got time for that fun thing about a twelve millimeter socket is you can put it on this way that's all fun and good but you can put it on this way too and that's something they don't teach you that in your trade school tech

Class that one all the way clear and there was much rejoicing its cracking this is where it's really nice to have a tool like this because everything's hot and pokey and you don't want stick your arm in there just do that just send it

You don't have to bang around and chew your arm up pull that one out the other one at this point it's a good idea to hold onto the thing because it's not a mug but yeah so when we looked at this at first there was an alternator here

There's brackets and it is like man's that go out the top or the bottom but now looking at it it's no big deal it's easy to see that it'll just fit out through here without much fuss so you can see where the stuff is melted out

Between the endocrine is's of the compressor that's a made-up work that's just the sauce that holds that wire together on the inside for the magnet let's go to the bench and we will swap over this piece onto the new compressor

Hey check this out Prince nut in here this one of these things is not like the others oh wait there's only two of them they don't match so you take this plate off of here and transfer all the junk from

Here to here let's begin I got a little extension because this sticks you got a sneaking around on a same thing with that it gets you in where you need to be take these off sometimes they suck on to it so you have to pull kind

Of harsh other times they pop off it just depends on altitude and temperature where it got put on whoo look at that beautiful gaskets brand-spanking-new the question is which bolts do you use do you use the ones that were on the

Bracket and move them with it or do you use the new ones what I do is I just look at them and bolt and see which is a better bolt so they look really a lot the same I'm gonna go with the new ones on this case normally I

Like the green or the brassy colored coating that are on these because it's pretty rust resistant but I don't know its judgment : it's not that critical unless you live in the Rust Belt and if you have an opinion on that let us know

In the comments below so we're not losing anything by not transferring this screw here because we have one here so we don't really need it and we've got the circuit all handled but the brackets kind of nice and the bracket is also

Secured by that same screw so we are gonna transfer it or just leave it on what we can do instead of taking this off when we just need the bracket we can just clip that right there with what shell we clip it dear Eliza dear Eliza

Problem solved so now we've got the bracket we've got the wire holder and we just put it on there it is a good idea to take a little bit of oil and put it on here and this looks really dry I don't see any well evident at all you

Know you're gonna need some in the system so a good way to put dye and oil in is to take your dye put it in the oil and then put it in the compressor so that's what we're going to do this bottle contains about eight fluid ounces

Typical amount that you put in a compressor in a system about this size and there's a mathematical formula for how many kgs of refrigerant how much oil to put in we'll put that right here normally when these are full it's about

To here and that's 8 ounces or gonna guess 4 is about here that's right about where we're at but you want to put somewhere between two and a half and four ounces if there isn't any in it here's some freaking guidelines for when

You can't find the facts as always facts or always greater than guidelines as for which side to put it in I favor the suction side just because it's fun or to say that it sucks it in on the suction

Side you put it in there and then turn it clockwise over which everybody the engine rotates and that'll pull it through the system I like to make sure that I can see a little bit coming through the other side so you know that

It's been through there and lubed it up looking at it that's the one that blocks the line was this guy right here and that guy right there if you follow the casting marks looks like it goes to this side they kind of crossed each other

This one goes here and then the other one goes to here yeah so we need to pour it down this hole when you turn this over you get an idea if you're doing the right thing if it pulls it in you can't see this being shipped without it

Spilling around and you see how shiny this one looks from the oil that's on it you guys want to see down inside of this thing you can see that thing moving around it's got some Lube on it a little bit not a whole lot just enough to

Protect it so we're gonna add some so that it's not missing in the system another good rule of thumb that you can do is pour the fluid out of this and measure it that's what you're supposed to do and then match what it has but

With this car it's been charged and recharged with stuff to where I think it might not be accurate anyway so not super scientific but we just want to get a general idea yellow snow right warm – yeah I do that a few times rock it back

And forth see how we think we're done and then there's more and then there's more seeing so you just get a little bit more in a little bit more until it adds up to about what you have in the bottle there I wish I could share with you how

Warm it is it's just like I don't know if you've ever peed into a pop can on a boat you know like if there's a lot of people in the area where the fish are is kneel down P&O can it feels about that warm you know like fishing I'm saying

That right there is about two and a half to three and a half ounces this – about two and a half to three and a half ounces because it's about two that for three and a half perfect so we're gonna pour it down in the hole and this kind

Of puts it in the bottom anyway then I'm gonna take a little bit of it and just kind of run it around drip drip drip on the seal and that way it'll look like it's leaking from all around that's the crappy thing about having

Your die already mixed in your oil as it gets everywhere you can use brake cleaner if you have to I guess to clean that out a brake cleaner put your seals at risk a little bit but this car so old it's gonna be a museum because it's just

Been kept so nice so long this is gonna hang off this side and then this is gonna click into that member and then this matches for that the bolts will line up either way this is the way you want to do it I'm gonna put a little bit

Of Loctite on these bolts if something starts to rust if there's Loctite on it that kind of keeps it said it doesn't rust I'm using it in a way that you use anti-seize but in a way that vibration and pressure changes and temperature

Changes heat cycles if you will aren't gonna screw with it it looks so pretty and nice before and now it looks like old and junky and that's the view that you're gonna have from the top it's too bad it doesn't come with this already

But so what you get that's what you get so you could use an Allen wrench a shape like an L I feel bad for you if you are but you got to do what you got to do I'll leave a link for both is a 6 millimeter so you can use the L ones and

Do it by hand anyway or if you want these I really like them for the access and the speed and it just makes the job more fun so link below for both of those on my threadlocker the cap just does all kinds of stupid things where it fills up

With stuff and it doesn't get on all the way this kress up and then you have to poke it with a pin in order to get it going again so then I came up with just stick your t pin I'll leave a link for these two if you want them just stick

That in there and it works as a cap too so this looks a little different because this bracket is no longer on it and the water is not being held up there reason being we went with a factory bracket because it's just cooler it just works

Better we're running this because it keeps things out of the way great the people got paid good money to design and build that so we just unpack it at it and let it flow free through here because it's being held here it looks

Like it's leaking some kind of proverbial news out the side of it like every cartoon from the eighties now mister and goes the compressor just lining it up like that we gotta get all the bolts

In place first and then once all that's in place it will hit the lines up we went through and tighten these by hand once it's in that bracket there's no going back unless yeah and bolt it again you can't

Get to the bolts basically because they'll be underneath it so I just get this underneath I just was I flex my fingers it'll hold I rise and fall another Indian trick you can do is have that bolt stick out too far that it can

Get to the hole make sure you get enough threads on the third first one that it doesn't rip them out because this is a cast iron thing it's not as big a deal if you say you're working on some this won't work through either if you're

Working on something that's aluminum that's soft metal you could rip something out and then cross yourself all kinds a headache hassle have you seen that meme on Facebook where guys doing a thermostat there's a broken bolt

And it's like when a five minute job becomes a six hour job that kind of stuff the ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure and it goes even more so when you're dealing with mechanic work today

This was tricky coming out so I point it to the passenger side of the car get it between the hoses and then send it in a little bit when you're doing a compressor you have to be careful in the order that you tighten it down then for

Example there's a seam here or a seal here there's another one right here where this bolts on so you don't want to twist that can break the o-ring and cause you to have a leak don't freak out about too much just kind of pay

Attention and make sure that you go on evenly some fries thank you.thank nothing at all so we're not working anything too hard I should have started this one by hand to begin with we're having a good

Time and I forgot about it that's important because if you tighten the other stuff down then you can't move it and wiggle it to get it to where it line up welcome you have shallow sockets and deep sockets

Well what stuff sticks out it can block access I'm gonna do the three and then follow up the other one put this guy on there and then that protects the wire this job so much easier we're just filling it with a lot of fluff I'm just

Trying to add things that would be helpful to somebody appreciate this Milwaukee made these smooth so that you're not cutting hoses when you're in a tight spot like that so I'm just using the same oil that's in the compressor to

Get on the ring here just run it across the top down around the bottom the whole point of doing this and q-tips are not always the answer I'll tell you that sometimes you really get a feel chase down the little strands that come off

But as you push this in there you just got to make sure that it goes smoothly if you don't it can cut the o-ring on the way in and you won't meet any worries there of it get that in there and then start your

Bolt and then while I've still got the same q-tip with the same lubricant on it we'll hit the other one something tells me that they made a rings better in 1995 and what they do today these things look beautiful they're nice and round they're

Not squared off that's the lion share of doing the compressor the rest of it is just getting the alternator back in where we took it off to get it in there all right so we just started in my hand so we got a few threads in

I'm gonna take this and line it up on this guy's throw some nuts on it ten millimeter bolt the thing together a little bit and we're going from there we've got a bolt that marries this bracket into the other one here and then

A couple of nuts keep things tucked in place little ten millimeter bolt holds the bracket together no big deal tell you lose the ten millimeter socket there's nothing give it a the spin listen to the bearing everything's

Closed at this point so we don't really care about you just check it and make sure that you want to put it in there but before we do do be fair put that in there and then we'll hit this with a hammer a couple times and knock that

Down so that goes on smooth see how that knocked clear down in there yeah that's gonna be even more tightening for me and in the meantime it'll be real easy to line up this is the nut on the backside you don't have to worry about it drop it

Or fall it out but you do need to make sure it doesn't spin I may run into something with that I don't think we'll have to trouble this is one particular example where I really like this fuel ratchet because I have to drag that

Piece of metal through there that sucks you're not right in there and tightens it up to where it doesn't move you don't want to go all the way or else it's hard but see how it just holds it wherever I want it that's the perfect way to do it

That's the way I like it so we get on the bolt like that and then just send it get it so we're gonna take a minute and put some wires on it's no good if you do this too hard this is plastic and you can break it so for this one you can see

That the buckles here I would think that it would go this way by be wrong so I just make sure I turn it before you get to the bottom this is another one of those things you want a screwdriver for so the buckle goes to the outside like

That the memory of this meaning the way that it wants to go says it goes to the back that's not the case you gotta go like that so I'm gonna take the screwdriver and just push on it here and if it's crooked I'm gonna

Push back here just whatever makes it get to where it wants to get down let's make sure you hear that magic sound when it goes so it's bottomed out it feels like it's on there but I didn't hear the click oh they're all the way backwards

We're good long as you can't pull it off it'll stay that's good rule of thumb right I'm gonna take this tool get the wire harness in there and then close the door what happens if you don't do these as

Your waters get wrecked your conditioner doesn't work if it happens right after you did the job it's hard to ask somebody for a bunch of money for replacing all this stuff if it doesn't work so respect the wires that's one of

The reasons I won't buy a Chevy nowadays it's the wire harnesses in the loom and the connectors not very reliable you work on them and it's a mess checking their wiring issues isn't pain I wouldn't believe how hard had to push to

Get that to click but it's worth it all right let's take a look up here there's not a lot going on there aside from the caps to put on we're almost to that point so you know what that means put the belt on snug stuff up in place

Evacuate and recharge looking at the pulleys they line up beautifully and then looking further into it you can see there's still a bunch of stuff that flown off the old compressor clutch let's just push down every bit as much

As it was won't take the belt off it's not going really have to loosen it a little more I was gonna try to pull out as much slack as I can see if I can get it to go anyway if you're off on two pulleys for example I'm off on the AC

Compressor clutch and then them off on the other end I'm off on the harmonic balancer so that's a lot of slack to bring up and make sure you got at least one of them all the way on yeah we're gonna have to

Do a little more on this did I just call this thing a little more so if I'm smart I'll try to collect it off to where it's right on the alternator you try to get it all on the same plane there's a reason why I pulled it up here and not

Off to the side and now that it's on I'll just I believe in you you can do it this is called over-committing the question is how tight the ax tighten the belt do you know the answer Spanky

Hey do 90 degrees yeah what's she saying that's fine the longest run on the belt this is short that's a little longer this is the longest run like a hypotenuse on a triangle I can twist this belt all the way around backwards

That's 180 degrees this is 90 degrees you got to get it to where the longest run will only turn 90 degrees you do that you won't squeak you won't burn up your parents from having it too tight and you won't squeak on the start up

From being too loose that looks pretty close and now I'm gonna hold it past 90 degrees and I'm going to tighten it until it hits 90 and then quit it just like when you're tightening a bolt there's a point where there's a big

Difference like the curve on a logger it function the hockey stick graph stuff can't go ahead Jason all right okay so this is your X this is y axis you get your Y axis your vertical plane horizontal plane a log function depend

Of its inverse or not goes along the x axis for a long time and then pulls up as you're tightening a bolt down there's a point somewhere in here but it's like yeah and then it just really binds up and then this point it's like you can't

Go past it because it's just like hitting a wall and then somewhere between here and here is where you break bolts off but this is the sweet spot where you want to tighten the bolt so you can feel that on the belt for the 90

Degree turn and you can fill that as you're typing notes down the guys who write the torque specs for stuff the way that they get those is based on experience of breaking bolts or whatever size bolts there are it'll give you what

Foot-pounds it should be you know like ahem 8 by 1 2 5 will have so much torque rating that it's not like magic there's a lot of repetition there's a lot of consistency so will that slide nut on the back

Let's go ahead and get the rest of that you can see that I've got one circled left on these batteries the ones that come with it that are Milwaukee or awesome like you see meat work on them all the time and they're fine I tried

Getting some cheap ones this is a no-name brand power e we're powering the drill so I try these and they work with these when you torque it like I can pull it off this way if I pull hard enough or if I'm leaning

On it it just falls right out whereas with Jesus day it's so much better you can't pull hard enough to do that without breaking something and if you pull on it as the wrench it doesn't come out in your hand these are a lot

Nicer case but these actually do a pretty good job and they're a lot less expensive so if you can stomach down or if you've got a heat gun do you use a heat gun or in lithium-ion batteries so as I'm making these videos I want to be

Able to give something to somebody that starting out so that they find value in it somebody that's doing the job can do the job but then I also like to share what I've learned my mechanic experience of 30-plus years so that other people

Can pick up on what tools I'm using or whatever we help each other out right that's it it's in it's time to evac we're gonna check all of our fittings make sure everything's good got high side low side check all of these

Connections kick the tires those are all the moisture all they in everything from having the system open and pulling it back out and we have a vacuum not only does it suck the refrigerant in the rate but it kicks out

All the moisture moisture is bad because when it goes from a high side to the low side there's a small restriction if there's water in there and it goes through moisture when it dropped some temperature from the expansion it can

Freeze it and walk it off or it can cause other problems you want make sure all the moisture is out the only way I know of doing that is pull a vacuum we lower the pressure is the easier it is to boil water for example when your

Anyway I could bore you about like boiling diagrams and reading the back to Mecca cheese things about your elevation in your how much but basically when you evacuate it with vacuum suck the whole thing down

Sucks all the water out we are pulled down to just maxed out and vacuum on the low side the high sides tied up in a way we are hooked up to a cylinder on the scale our starting number is 8 point 8 kilograms capacity is point 9 kilograms

Or 0.8 just got to be somewhere in there so we're just gonna run until it's 8 and a bunch of zeros and then go a little bit past and we'll be there so it's got tightened down the negative battery terminal and it should start a lot

Better now I think all the things that you forget when they're on the other side of the engine compartment need this all the way cold all right it's time to tear it up ta re I put that on there and you got perfect

If you get a gun as soon as I opened I admit they have this on but you see that it spikes up so that goes well off over and then you hear the compressor kick on that's good the sensor in there

Recognized compressor is all that by the numbers it is taken on refrigerator let's get it to where it's eight and a bunch of zeros and we'll cut up some I kind of I mean close the

Website now this is why if you're using the postal scale an automatic off because you're cheap you have to write down the number and go by the way we got this open and it's something to date again

35 in Kakaako five psi that's about right right now it's a 38 it is see how

Quiet everywhere so how about the vent how does it feel there no nice after working in the Hawker arch to get in the car and the a/c working very cool just one last piece put on yeah case closed
