The Honda CRV a/c system is unfortunately prone to catastrophic failure sometimes referred to in the industry as “Black Death”. When this occurs it is important to repair the system properly and thoroughly, replacing the entire cooling portion of the a/c system including the Compressor, Compressor clutch, Compressor coil, Condenser, Desiccant Dryer, Evaporator, Expansion Valve, all Hoses, Freon, Oil and completely flush the ridged lines. You should not rush through this repair as the cleanliness of the pressurized portion of the a/c system as well as the quality of parts, proper oil level and Freon charge will determine the longevity of the repair.
