Air Conditioning Systems

Condenser

  • The high-temperature, high-pressure refrigerant from the compressor passes through the condenser, where it is cooled and changes from a gas to a liquid.

Receiver

  • The refrigerant liquefies in the condenser and is stored in this tank for supply to the evaporator. On newer Lexus models the receiver is integrated into the condenser.

Compressor

  • It compresses the refrigerant, and sends it to the condenser under high pressure.

Cabin air filter

  • Captures unwanted particles such as pollen, dust and other pollutants before they enter your vehicle’s passenger compartment.

Cooling unit

  • Includes evaporator, expansion valve and thermistor.

Blower unit

  • Blows air into the passenger compartment.

Expansion valve

  • Atomizes liquefied refrigerant as it enters the evaporator.

Evaporator

  • Vaporizes the refrigerant which cools the evaporator. Air passing through the evaporator is cooled before entering the passenger compartment.
