A/C compressor repair.

Here the compressor is dismantled, for just in case. And I was curious that what is inside :) I changed the axel seal, it must be changed if the compressor is not been used for a long time. Also I put new oils (250 ml) to the compressor. The A/C didn't produce any cool air at all, and the gas pressures were not right. The lower side pressure was 6 bars, and the high side was 7.5 bar. Diagnose was that the compressor was faulty. I found a used compressor from eBay. Now the A/C is working perfectly! Pressures are 2 bar at the low side, and 12-15 bar at the high side. The systems makes "hissing" sound when turned off, that is normal.
