Replacing the receiver dryer to dash air

Back at you !

Hope everyone is enjoying their buses this summer??

Well my dash air conditioning wasn't working so I took it in for repair.

After a couple of days with shop they replaced a leaking hose line coupling, retested to make sure there were no leaks then charged the system.

Still no cold air :((

They told me it might be the receiver dryer to the system.

Has anyone ever changed one of those out on a 44B 2016 Anthem?

Where do I purchase a new one and is it much of a deal to replace?

Thanks guys!

Might try another shop. I would think a good shop would know what the problem is.

I just had my AC serviced it was blowing 72-75 degrees. Reasons : 1# low on Freon and ac belt needed to be replaced. Never would of thought my AC belt would already need to be replaced so soon.

RUN!! The name of the piece in question is a receiver filter dryer which means it ALWAYS needs to be replaced when you break a system. If they donít understand that, everything else is going to empty your pockets and enrich theirs!

There might be a sticker with a part number on it on the existing drier. If not, you order it based on what the hose fittings are. Remove the old one and carry it to the auto parts store. Wrap up the hose ends to keep everything clean while you have the drier out. Minimize the time you have the new drier uncapped and soaking up moisture. Vacuum system asap to boil off any moisture and then recharge.

Exactly. Rule #1 change the dryer whenever you open the system.
Rule #2, see rule #1!

Dryers are not that expensive.
For a tech they are a simple change. However, not so much for a novice.

Re your problem , is the compressor turning? If yes you are likely low in refrigerant. If not then you are likely completely out of refrigerant. Likely the same coupling is leaking.

They may have tested it by pulling a vacuum. Needs to be pressure tested using nitrogen.

Good luck.
