Air Conditioning Pipe / AC Hose for auto

Air conditioner auto parts: Air Conditioning Pipe / AC Hose

A/c hose serves to connect individual parts of the air conditioner. Air conditioner is now standard in most cars, because they significantly increase the comfort. The lines inside the device must be for high pressure or low pressure, depending on the purpose of use. There are also universal a/c hoses. They can be made of metal reinforced fabric. Often rigid cables are used.

If the air conditioner does not work properly, this can have many causes. A blocked up or leaky a/c hose can cause a malfunction. If there are paddles in the feet, this may indicate problems with air conditioner. In case if there appear unpleasant smells, perhaps, it will be enough to disinfect the entire system. A/c hose can be damaged because of an accident. In any case, it is important to buy the right hose with proper terminals. There is possibility to tailor the hoses, but in majority of cases it is very expensive. Nevertheless, if you can not find the appropriate a/c hose, you can tailor it.

It is necessary to replace the a/c hose only in repair shops. First, you need to empty the air conditioner with the help of an A/C service unit. Under no circumstances disassemble the air conditioner when it is not empty! The coolant is under pressure and can splash out. This can result in cold-related injuries.

Due to our wide assortment you will find any part you need in our online store of spare car parts.

How to detect the air conditioner hose failure

To perform an independent examination of the A/C hose, you need to visually inspect it. A properly operating component must be intact, dry and clean, there should be no oily stains on it. The reverse situation indicates freon leakage.

You may identify that the air conditioner hose needs to be diagnosed by the following symptoms:

  • the compressor does not turn on after you press the A/C button;
  • the air conditioner spontaneously switches off;
  • freon circulation in the system is impaired;
  • contamination between the air conditioner and the engine cooling radiator.

Causes of the air conditioner hose failure

Eventually the hose abrades. It is important to know that parts produced from poor-quality material tend to wear out much faster. Sharp temperature changes have adverse impact on the part, they can contribute to its cracking or drying. Ingress of moisture or abrasive particles on the A/C hose also shortens its life.

If a car is often used on low quality roads, vibration resulting from the road surface defects can promote the part breakage. Increased pressure in the system resulting from the radiator contamination, can cause the component to break as well. If errors have been made during installation, the air conditioning and ventilation system pipes and hoses can be twisted and chafed.

Repair of the air conditioner hose

In case of minor damage the part is repairable. All repair works must be performed exclusively by professionals. Depending on the damage location and degree, you can replace the seals, flush the air conditioning system, press out the hose that has lost its intactness and restore its tightness by welding.

Replacement of the air conditioner hose

If a fault is not repairable, the air conditioner hose requires replacement, since usage of a defective hose leads to compressor depressurizing; and coolant leakage can provoke the formation of corrosion spots on the compressor and thermostatic valve. The component replacement procedure is as follows:

  1. Freon should be removed from the system with the use of special equipment.
  2. Then the battery should be demounted and the hose mounting bolts should be unscrewed on both sides.
  3. The faulty component should be removed. Please note that plugs must be installed to the open holes immediately after the part demounting.
  4. Next, a new part should be installed, after which the components should be reassembled in reverse order.
  5. When the installation is finished, make sure that the new hose does not vibrate when the air conditioner is operating.

If you have no skills in car repair works, it is best to entrust the A/C hose replacement to specialists.
