Product Details

A/C Condenser by Spectra Premium®. With this high-quality Spectra Premium A/C condenser, you can easily fix your vehicle properly and have money left in your pocket. It's designed to look and fit just like the original part and provide reliable performance and an extensive service life.


  • Drop in fit for easy installation
  • Built to meet or exceed manufacturer's specifications
  • The most extensive vehicle coverage found in the industry, all makes and models
  • Excellent crash market coverage for late model vehicles
  • Reverse engineered design to ensure proper fit and function upon installation
  • Packaged to ensure product quality at installation
  • All models supplied in the same construction style of the Original equipment manufacturer
  • ISO 9001 manufacturers supply all AC Condensers

The A/C condenser is designed to function as a heat exchanger. This component receives the hot, high-pressure gaseous refrigerant from the compressor and cools it to a warm liquid state under high pressure expelling heat removed from the cabin. As the condenser is installed in front of the radiator, its cooling fins are exposed to oncoming air through the grille and air pulled by the engine cooling fan. Condensers can leak due to corrosion or puncture, become internally clogged from debris if there is a compressor failure, and cooling ability can be compromised from damage to the fins. If you’re in need of a replacement Spectra Premium has the condenser that will get your A/C back in action. Spectra Premium reverse engineers the OE design to ensure proper function and easy installation. Each condenser is constructed in the OE style to ensure your A/C will perform as designed, and all condensers are made in ISO 9001 quality certified manufacturing plants. Spectra Premium is so confident in the quality of its parts that they come with a 2-year warranty.

Spectra Premium warrants its climate control products, new or remanufactured, to be free from defects in material and workmanship for a period determined in this warranty from the date of installation or date of purchase. The sole liability of Spectra Premium, under this warranty, is to replace or repair such climate control products following its return to Spectra Premium or Spectra Premium’s authorised dealers, together with the original invoice for the climate control product.

This warranty covers any climate control produc2ts furnished from Spectra Premium but does not include labour of any kind or materials not furnished by Spectra Premium or any charge for any such labour or materials.

This warranty does not apply to any equipment which has been repaired or altered outside the factories of Spectra Premium Industries in any way so as, in the judgement of Spectra Premium to affect the stability of the product.

This warranty does not apply to products which have been subjected to misuse, negligence, and / or operating conditions in excess of those for which such equipment was designed and / or deemed defective by Spectra Premium as a result of the physical or chemical effects of water, steam or other liquids, gases or agents present in the system operating environment of the equipment or the failure of the vehicle warning system.

Warranty Coverage

  • Compressors for passenger cars and light duty vehicles are covered for a period of 1 year or 12,000 miles / 20,000 Km, whichever comes first, from the date of installation
  • Condensers are covered for a period of 2 years or 24,000 miles / 40,000 Km, whichever comes first, from the date of installation
  • Heater cores are covered for a period of 1 year or 12,000 miles / 20,000 Km, whichever comes first, from the date of installation
  • Evaporators are covered for a period of 1 year or 12,000 miles / 20,000 Km, whichever comes first, from the date of installation

The warranty for compressors will be denied if the following conditions are not followed (refer to compressor literature in box):

1. R-134a is the only approved refrigerant for all Spectra Premium compressors. Use of any other refrigerant will void the warranty.

2. The accumulator / filter drier must be replaced in conjunction with a compressor and/or condenser replacement.

3. The compressor clutch air gap must be verified prior to installation on the vehicle (refer to OEM specifications).

4. The specific and proper type of oil (see manufacturer’s specifications) should be inserted through the suction port of the compressor or oil plug. With the help of a spanner wrench turn the compressor shaft (not the clutch) 10 to15 times to help properly distribute the oil throughout the compressor and prevent hydraulic lockup.

5. The A/C system must be held under vacuum for a minimum of 45 minutes.

6. The fan clutch or radiator fan motor must be checked for proper operation.

7. For applications using an orifice tube or liquid line containing an orifice tube, the orifice tube must be replaced (installation of an orifice tube repair kit is also valid).

8. If the system has an expansion device (expansion valve) the technician must inspect and clean the filter screen or replace the valve if necessary.

9. The A/C system must be flushed with an approved flushing solvent. The only accepted option to flushing is the installation of an in-line filter or compressor suction screen (providing the refrigerant oil is not contaminated).

10. Condenser and radiator airflow must be cleared of any obstruction or restrictions. Clean and realign bent fins. The technician may need to replace the condenser in specific applications or situations (refer to compressor literature in box).

11. Spectra Premium requests that all parallel flow condensers be replaced when a compressor fails (the condenser design prevents a thorough cleaning and debris will cause system restrictions).

Replacement or repair of the climate control product by Spectra Premium shall be the only remedy available to a purchase under this warranty. Spectra Premium shall not be liable for any consequential or incidental damages of any kind resulting from the use or misuse of these or other products.

Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act:
Legally, a vehicle manufacturer cannot void the warranty on a vehicle due to an aftermarket part unless they can prove that the aftermarket part caused or contributed to the failure in the vehicle (per the Magnuson Moss Warranty Act (15 U.S.C. 2302(C)) Learn More
