Custom reconditioning of your original A5 Sealed compressor and clutch core. Reconditioning consists of initial test to determine the core is serviceable*, following by stripping exterior surfaces to bare metal and dismantling*. Compressor is hot-flushed at 180 degrees until contaminant free, the original shaft seal is removed, rebuild and reinstalled, a full 11oz. oil charge is added and the compressor is pressure tested for leaks with Nitrogen at 250 psi. The clutch bearing, clutch disks, clutch hub and various related pieces are cleaned, inspected, calibrated and reassembled on the compressor**. Complete unit is performance tested at 1,800 rpm's and painted. A new "Caution" decal is installed and the compressor is stamped with the "OK FINAL TEST" stamp. NOTE - Because not all A5 compressors are rebuildable and the determination cannot be made accurately until disassembled, there is a 1-hour labor evaluation charge ($90). This charge is billed in advance and is applied toward the rebuild of your compressor if it is determined to be a good core candidate for rebuild. Compressor cores that are seized cannot be rebuilt.
* NOTE 1 - A5 Sealed compressors cannot be opened up and rebuild like most compressors. Instead, this is a reconditioning service of the compressor and a rebuild service of the clutch.
** NOTE 2 - Bearing replacement or clutch hub machining is available at an additional cost.
