Driers and Accumulators / Receivers
Driers and Accumulators are designed to protect the compressor from refrigerant that has not reverted back to its gaseous after a trip to the system. The AC compressor would be damaged if it attempted to compress the liquid refrigerant. It is one of the most vital components for keeping the AC system running properly.
Expect to replace the drier whenever the AC system is opened. This means if you replace the AC compressor, AC condenser, AC evaporator, or any AC hoses, lines, etc. the drier MUST be replaced. Failure to do this will result in damage to your vehicle's AC system and ultimately void any warranty on new parts you have purchased!
