Until it stops working, most people will never appreciate how important the A/C compressor is. While all of the parts in the air conditioning system are important, arguably the most important is the compressor, without it you wouldn't have air conditioning. Though the compressor can fail for a multitude of reasons, most commonly the two parts that will fail are the compressor motor its self or the clutch that engages the compressor to run will fail. With some compressors you can get away with just changing the clutch, others however you need to replace the entire compressor. If you are looking for a replacement, you can depend on Omega A/C compressors.
