The air-conditioning compressor is usually driven by the engine via a V-belt or ribbed V-belt. It compresses and transports the refrigerant in the system. There are different compressor designs available. The refrigerant is sucked in as a gas at low temperature from the evaporator; it is then compressed. It is then forwarded in a gaseous state at high temperature and high pressure to the condenser. The compressor can be dimensioned depending on the size of the system. The compressor is filled with special lubricating oil. Part of the oil circulates through the air-conditioning system with the refrigerant.
Bearing damage and leaks are the most common causes of failures and can often be attributed to poor maintenance.
