A/C O-Ring

We have 403 Items for A/C O-Ring In-stock.

Leaks-they're not just messy, they can also mess with your auto system's performance. Take your air conditioning (a/c) assembly for example. When you have refrigerant leaking all over the system, then you can't expect your a/c to work properly. So if you want to bring back your cabin's lost cool, then we highly recommend sealing leaks in your air conditioning assembly with the A/C O-Ring. Usually made of either neoprene rubber or plastic, this o-ring is built to stop refrigerant loss by sealing two connecting points together. Whether this component is stopping leaks in your a/c compressor, at the end of your a/c pipe, or at your evaporator tube, with a durable o-ring in your ride, you can keep your a/c working properly. Now, though your stock o-rings are generally built for lasting service, there will come a time when one of your factory rings will need replacing. And if that time has come, then we suggest that you look for a replacement A/C O-Ring as soon as possible. After all, you wouldn't want a couple of leaks to ruin your a/c's powerful performance, right? Don't worry, there are a lot of high-quality replacement o-rings on the market. In fact, here at Auto Parts Warehouse we carry an assortment of o-rings from the top aftermarket brands in the industry. What's more is that we're offering our replacement a/c o-rings at guaranteed budget-friendly prices! That's why, when it comes to finding the right o-ring for your a/c, check out our selection at the Auto Parts Warehouse catalog now!

Prevent Leakage by Replacing A/C O-Rings

It's unreasonable to sweat your way through a destination just because of your car's broken air conditioning system. When your vehicle's A/C leaks refrigerant, it becomes less efficient or even not efficient at all. That is why A/C O-rings exist ? they prevent refrigerant leaks in your car's A/C system. It is advisable to replace your A/C O-rings once they get worn out, avoiding major repairs which would definitely drain your pocket.

Here are the tools you'll need to repair your car's leaking A/C system:

Difficulty level: Easy

Tools you'll need:

  • Car's repair manual
  • Line wrench set
  • O-ring pick
  • O-ring seals

Step 1:Park your car and open the hood to start inspecting the A/C system. Look for the A/C service valves with the help of your vehicle's manual. These valves are typically found in the compressor.

Step 2: Each valve is connected to an A/C hose. Locate both the high and low pressure A/C hoses connected to the valves. Attach the hoses from the manifold gauges to the service valves.

Step 3: Engage the vacuum pumps. Evacuate the A/C system until the pressure gauge on the manifold gauges display 0 psi. Turn off the vacuum pump.

Step 4: Find the condenser and inspect it. Two hoses are connected to the condenser ? the low-pressure hose and the high-pressure hose. Use a line wrench to loosen and remove these hoses.

Step 5: Place the O-ring pick beneath each hose, one line at a time. Poke the worn out O-ring from the groove in each of them. Put new O-rings on each hose and roll them until they sit exactly where the old O-rings were attached.

Step 6: Reattach the high and low-pressure hoses to the condenser using a line wrench.

Step 7: Recharge the A/C system with a refrigerant. Connect a refrigerant can to the yellow hose of the manifold gauges. Open the valve on the yellow hose and recharge it to its recommended pressure. Close the valve on the low-pressure hose when the pressure gauge reads between 25 and 40 psi. Likewise, close the valve on the high-pressure hose when the pressure gauge reads between 225 and 250 psi.

Refrigerant is a toxic substance that can harm your skin. We recommend you consult an expert when recharging your A/C system.
