Kia Soul EV (PS EV) 2015-2020 Service Manual / Heating,Ventilation, Air Conditioning / Heat Pump / Accumulator Repair procedures

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

4.
Remove the accumulator (A) after loosening the mounting bolt.

5.
Install in the reverse order of removal.
   
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.
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.
