Find the correct Accumulators & Receiving Driers for your car
Accumulators & Receiver Driers
There are a few areas of cars which tend to scare people who aren't as mechanically minded as others. One of those areas is the cooling and heating system of a car, with the air conditioning system being particularly scary. It needn't be that way, though.
Accumulators are used in air-con systems to protect the system against water or liquid damage, removing debris and moisture from the system as well as storing excess refrigerant.
In systems which use thermal expansion valves, receiver driers do much the same job, but in a different way. For all the non-mechanics that is all you need to know really.
If you've been having problems with your air conditioning system, replacing the accumulator or receiver drier might just sort out the problem. Fortunately, finding the right parts couldn't be easier, with our website and in-store colleagues being designed and trained to be as helpful as possible.
