Re: 2015 Subaru Forester AC Compressor replacement

I don't have the means of obtaining that kind of equipment. And to recover the refrigerant was going to cost me $100. I don't want to intentionally destroy the ozone layer, but I'm also not made of money.

Re: 2015 Subaru Forester AC Compressor replacement

I am throwing in the towel. I gave it a go, but since this is my daily and I'm still a ways away from being a, even middling, AC DIY'er, I'm taking the foz to a qualified AC pro. 9 days ago I rented the AC manifold from Autozone again to check the pressure in my system. I didn't feel comfortable kno...

Suggest a AC Pro near me

I am searching for a AC service pro in the Delaware/South Eastern PA area that I can trust with charging or repairing the AC system in my Subaru Forester. Please recommend a professional for me to take my Forester to.
Thank you.

Re: 2015 Subaru Forester AC Compressor replacement

Not being rude. I realized I made several mistakes. Not my proudest moment. I haven't read that a 30 min evacuation isn't enough. There's a lot of conflicting information on the internet regarding AC system charging. Is there a sticky in one of the forums on here that people new to AC repair can ref...

Re: 2015 Subaru Forester AC Compressor replacement

My AC Compressor installation is a case study in why you should seek out a knowledgable professional AC auto mechanic. Or, at the very least, do your research before jumping in. I've probably reduced the life of my compressor down to that of a $100 used one off of ebay with the shade tree mechanic m...

Re: 2015 Subaru Forester AC Compressor replacement

I'm going to give this one more shot. I will flush all the components out. I bought two cans of this: https://www.autozone.com/a-c-charging-and-refrigerant/a-c-system-cleaner/a-c-certified-pro-flush-system-cleaner-aerosol-spray-17oz/896840_0 Hopefully I only need one can. Autozone also has a manifol...

Re: 2015 Subaru Forester AC Compressor replacement

I did not attempt to flush my evaporator out. Bad. Always better to start with a fresh system oil charge (either inside the comp, or inside the comp plus other parts such as the condenser and evaporator) rather than attempt to balance oil. Damn... Is it too late to do this? My compressor came with ...

Re: 2015 Subaru Forester AC Compressor replacement

Can't really say anything except that i really hate when AC tries to make you go insane. I'm sorry your efforts haven't let you to your ice cold AC paradise yet. I'd have paid a pro to vacuum and recharge through a RRR station if i were you. So to rule out any possible charge issues. Now i don't th...

Re: 2015 Subaru Forester AC Compressor replacement

I need some help. When I turn the AC on, the compressor turns but never turns off. And the air isn't cold. Maybe slightly cooler than ambient. The high and low pressure line fittings get warm to too hot to touch. And none of the lines get too cold to touch. I replaced the following: - compressor, - ...

Re: 2015 Subaru Forester AC Compressor replacement

According to Subaru's service manual, I should use a electronic leak detector. So I should indeed charge the system first. I did a quick search. There doesn't appear to be a electronic leak detector for borrow from Advance Autoparts or Autozone. Are there any online vendors that have them for rent? ...
