When a failed Porsche air conditioning compressor is replaced by a new Porsche a/c compressor, it is so important to have the lubricant
distributed evenly across the Porsche air conditioning compressor and the a/c system before engaging the system for the first
time.

If this is overlooked and the Porsche air con compressor is engaged immediately after is has been charged with
refrigerant, it may happen that all the oil in the Porsche a/c compressor will be pushed out all at once while there
is no oil yet to enter the Porsche air conditioning compressor on the other side. This is caused by the fact that it takes some
time for the oil to spread across the system and mix with the refrigerant. Eventually the Porsche ac compressor
may be damaged because of a lack of lubrication during the first few minutes of operation.


This will of course be more problematic after the system has been flushed, this will mainly be the
case after the Porsche air con compressor has suffered a catastrophic failure with metal particles from the Porsche a/c compressor
being spread across the entire system.


A rule of thumb guide when installing a new Porsche air con compressor is to manually turn the Porsche a/c compressor pulley
to make sure that the oil is distributed through the Porsche air con compressor evenly. Experienced engineers will
normally turn the Porsche ac compressor 10—15 times to ensure that oil has been pushed around the system.


There is still more to do to prepare the Porsche air con compressor, knowing and following the procedure will be of
great importance if a newly installed Porsche air conditioning compressor should fail after a short period of time and within
its warranty period. There is no bigger disappointment than having a warranty claim denied because
something as simple as the following procedure has been overlooked.


Generally new Porsche a/c compressors are supplied charged with oil, but it is always recommended that you
check this by draining the new Porsche air con compressor to check the amount of oil in the Porsche air conditioning compressor.


Then once you have removed the old Porsche a/c compressor you should do the same again, empty the old Porsche ac compressor
of oil to see how much oil was in it and then fill the new Porsche air con compressor with the same amount
this is to avoid over charging the system with oil.


After this has been done and the Porsche a/c compressor has been fitted, you do not engage the Porsche air con compressor with
the engine running until the following steps have been followed.


1, Open all air louvers at the dash board, 2, Start the engine and let it stabilise at idle speed 3, Set the
blower at maximum speed, 4, Engage the a/c system and operate it continuously for 2 minutes at below
1500 rpm.


After the two minutes the Porsche air con compressor oil will have distributed evenly throughout the Porsche a/c system.
