Accumulators & Receiver Driers

Accumulators & Receiver Driers

Accumulators and receiver-driers trap debris and moisture. When these parts suffer wear or break down, coolant may not reach vital areas of your air-conditioning system. Stop overheating in its tracks with cheap, quality replacements from Car Parts 4 Less.
Accumulators and receiver-driers perform very similar functions. Both parts trap and store moisture and debris with a desiccant bag. This helps to ensure coolant reaches the compressor, while also preventing damage. The system can then generate cool air to keep your car at the right temperature. Despite doing much the same job, accumulators and receiver-driers are not interchangeable. Air-conditioning systems with orifice tubes just use accumulators. On the other hand, those with expansion valves just use the smaller receiver-driers. The type of part your car uses depends on the make and model. When your accumulator or receiver-drier wears or breaks down, your air-conditioning becomes less effective. Signs that you need to replace either part include leaking coolant, and a lack of cold air. To find the right accumulator or receiver-drier at a bargain price, look no further than Car Parts 4 Less. For a list of suitable parts, type your registration in the yellow box on the left.
