Replacement
[3-WAY Solenoid Valve]
1.
Recover the refrigerant with a recovery/ recycling/ charging station.
   
Do not use the same A/C recovery / charging station as conventional belt-driven compressors.
Since the electric compressor uses high-voltage, POE oil with high resistivity should be used.Since the electric compressor uses high-voltage, POE oil with high resistivity should be used.
If PAG oil mixes into the POE oil of the system, dielectric breakdown may occur due to decreased volumetric resistivity and the A/C compressor may not work.
2.
Disconnect the negative (-) battery terminal.
3.
Disconnect the 3-WAY solenoid valve connector (A).

4.
Remove the refrigerant line after loosening the mounting nuts (A).

5.
Remove the 3-WAY solenoid valve assembly (A) after loosening the mounting bolt and nut.

6.
Install in the reverse order of removal.
