Re: Thermal Expansion Valve TXV Location

So, is this the TPX, low coolant or the compressor mates? My unit has the same sounds as the video posted earlier.
Your compressor will look to be operating perfectly, dropping in and out at the exact operating pressure. I had a TXV changed out (I was told) that didn't fix it. Only after my persistence did they change out the compressor before ripping out the dash to replace the condenser. This fixed the noise. Now when I say fixed it, when the car has had a spirited drive, on very rare occasions can you hear a very faint noise. This does not concern me. I'd insist on a compressor and TXV change Mate.
