I guess you mean a joint on the compressor body. These can be difficult to fix as they are often caused by corrosion. The metal oxide, as it forms, expands and causes leaks by pushing the mating surfaces apart. The only way to fix is to strip the compressor down to component parts and clean with a wire brush or steel wool all oxide areas back to metal. Using new gaskets it can then be rebuilt. This is a lot of work and I would first look for a clean replacement example in a local breakers yard. Simply swapping over will be much less costly in terms of time and more likely to work reliably. Check the compressor first before taking a) the belt pulley should spin freely without a sound b) apply a voltage from a car battery and the pulley should become stiff as the compressor clutch engages with a click. Once you have changed the compressor you will need to have the AC system recharged with gas. Trust this to a specialist garage as they will have the tools to do this properly.

I have torn down a few compressors before, getting the Original Gasket to replace the defective gasket is the difficult part. I have used "THE RIGHT STUFF" if the compressor old gasket is not damaged in the tear down.

Remember that you must adhere to EPA guidelines and evacuate the system before you take the system apart. Take your time and also replace the O-rings when putting it back together (the Green Ones)

On my 2001 Honda Accord EX, the cooling fans will not come on when the air conditioner is turned on and it will not cool. What is causing this?


sounds like an air conditioning issue if your only complaint is the fans not coming on when air conditioning is used. you need to have the a/c sys checked out to see if you have a leak or perhaps refrigerant may be low. sometimes you may have a compressor that no longer works so the system may not be building up pressure so the pressure switch does not cycle the fans.

this means that your a/c has a leak somewhere in it....or the a/c compressor has gone bad.....you can check the a/c charge with a guage you can pick up at your local automotive store. if the charge is good then chances are that your a/c compressor is bad....kindof a costly fix.
