BMW AC Compressor Parts

Quality is one of the most substantial aspects to the BMW brand. They have an amazing product line, which has supported them in growing the company into a one of the leading auto brands of modern day, and even with their AC compressor parts and components. On the warmer days of the year you depend on your BMW's air conditioning to make the interior cabin tolerable. The main aspect to the proper functioning of this system is the compressor, which is at the core of your auto's AC system. An issue with your compressor may sometimes be repaired easily, so it is imperative to know what kinds of issues can come up. Your AC compressor is usually a piston driven refrigerant pump bolted to the front of your BMW’s engine. This is driven by the belt from your BMW’s engine crankshaft pulley. The AC compressor is turned on and off with a magnetic clutch that operates when an electrical current flows through a coil at the compressor. Your BMW’s AC compressor provides the right amount of internal pressure of the AC system that lets the refrigerant cycle through the condenser on its way to the evaporator and back. When your BMW’s AC compressor becomes faulty, it will usually result in issues that may include, unusual noises, complete seizure, refrigerant leakage, or pressure issues. Most of these issues will require a replacer of your BMW’s compressor, but sometimes if a leak is found to be coming from the compressor shaft seal, the seal can be replaced without taking out the compressor. If you have questions about BMW’s AC compressor parts or components, the FCP Euro team is here for any help or support you may need.

There are five types of AC compressors that include, the crank compressor, the axial compressor, the radial compressor, the rotary vane compressor, and the scroll compressor. The crank type is piston driven, as is the axial type, while the rotary vane works like an oil pump, and the radial type uses a shaft mounted eccentric to drive pistons. The scroll type uses an orbiting spiral assembly to get the proper pumping action. While it is sporadic, sometimes a mechanic can take out and overhaul a broken AC compressor, but expertise and experience are needed. A lot of the time, it is easier to just replace the compressor with a new one. Another thing to think about is to make sure the issue is diagnosed properly, since something as easy as a broken cycling switch may bring on symptoms similar to those of a faulty compressor.
