Enjoy the coolness is not possible in every domestic car. But to install air conditioning on the classics or nine is quite real. Now we have to find a conditioner with a suitable vehicle. You will feel a significant power drop when the compressor starts up. But if you are a supporter of convenience, not speed, then it will not pay attention. It would be better if you do overhaul the engine before installing the air conditioner.

If the engine has high mileage, extra load it will be not very good. Also nice would be if the fuel injection system is the injector. This allows you to configure the electronic control unit so that the minimum fuel consumption and maximum engine power. For automobiles, the perfect conditioning with the small and midget cars of foreign production.

The composition of the air-conditioning system

The basis of conditioning is the compressor, which is driven by the timing belt or alternator. Method of actuator depends on the specific car model. Radiator (condenser), installed in the front of the car designed to cool the refrigerant. And in the cabin installed a radiator in which the refrigerant is in a cold state. If more precisely to speak, the radiator takes heat from the surrounding air. Copper tubes that connect the nodes of the conditioning for the circulation of refrigerant.

The four-way valve must be installed if winter is going to use the air conditioner as a heater. It changes the direction of movement of the refrigerant. And, of course, the fans on the radiators. In the cabin the blower motor distributes the cooled air and the condenser is a more effective cooling of the refrigerant due to the installed fan. The compressor has an electromagnetic clutch. The pulley constantly spinning, and the compressor rotor are connected with this clutch when you turn on the air conditioner.

What you need to do to put the air conditioner on VAZ?

First, you should change a little the power supply system. The generator, which is installed by default, now turns out to be too weak. It is necessary that he gave to 10 Amp more. At the very least. Otherwise there will be enough charging the battery, the engine operation will be unstable. Second, the alternator drive belt should also be changed. The most appropriate option will be the use of the generator VAZ-2110 nines and classics. Accordingly, the belt drive also with this car. You only need to use a strap with more length.

And it is desirable to use a special idler pulley. At cars VAZ-2108 and VAZ-2114, will not have problems with the installation of a radiator in the cabin. Beard (middle panel) allows you to mount the radiator and fans under the bar tape. The classical places not so much, so the best place to install the radiator is a shelf under the glove box. In the process of operation, however, the passenger in the front seat will be very cold. But don't forget about condensation, which can cause rotting of the body. To drain it must.
