New Aftermarket HVAC Kit replaces Acura TSX A/C Compressors matching OEM #38810-RBB-A01. There is only 1 Compressor type available for the 2004–2008 TSX — HS110R with a 7 Groove Clutch. Still, we ask that you select your Model Year from the dropdown menu above to guarantee the exact fitment. Should you need to verify the exact Year / Make / Model / Trim of your vehicle, please use this Free VIN Decoder.
The A/C System is pressurized and should be serviced by an ASE® Certified mechanic. Additionally, the refrigerant (‘Freon’) is an eco-hazardous waste that should be removed from the vehicle with care and recycled to prevent harm to the environment. Draining the Freon via the Schrader valve without using a special machine to recycle it is morally irresponsible and illegal in most areas.

Every Part sold on this Site is covered by a Limited Parts Warranty: 24-Months or 24,000 miles, whichever comes first. An optional 24-Month Labor Guarantee ($80) is available to qualified automotive professionals, which can help pay towing and labor expenses up to $400. You must select this option at the time of purchase as it cannot be added to the order at a later date. This feature is exclusive to qualified Repair Shops (e.g. Dealerships and ASE® Certified Repair Shops) and must be approved at the time of processing. Further, Warranty replacements are subject to approval and we reserve the right to send an independent, third-party inspector to verify that a failure has actually occurred. Replacement Parts are sent UPS® Ground. Repair Shops that opt for the Labor Guarantee will have their Parts delivered via UPS® 2-Day Air at no extra charge.
SteeringPros.com requires that you follow all factory procedures for replacing the A/C Compressor, Receiver Drier (or Accumulator) and Expansion Device (or Orifice Tube) — which must include a full flush of the A/C System with an approved solvent to remove debris — or the Warranty will be void.
2004–2008 Acura TSX vehicles use approximately 8 ounces of type PAG 46 Oil only. You must also use between 17.60–19.40 ounces of type R-134a refrigerant (‘Freon’) or the Warranty will be void. DO NOT OVERFILL.
Q: WHAT ARE COMMON SYMPTOMS OF A FAILED ACURA TSX A/C COMPRESSOR?
A: Common issues reported by 2004–2008 Acura TSX owners include:
- Loud Noises — Worn bearings or reed valves may produce a grinding or squeaking sound when the Compressor is turned on. Since the A/C Compressor is driven by the engine’s accessory belt, continued use of a noisy HVAC System is inadvisable and could result in seizure of the Clutch Pulley. Seizure of the Compressor Clutch may lead to extreme pressure on the drive belt, causing it to snap and result in loss of power for other vehicle components like the P/S Pump.
- High Cabin Temperature — The most obvious sign of trouble is the A/C doesn’t blow as cold as it once did. This may be due to debris or a restriction in the A/C line that prevents the Compressor from operating at normal pressure levels. SteeringPros.com always assumes debris is present in the HVAC System and requires that an approved flush or solvent be used — in addition to the replacement of the Receiver Drier (or Accumulator) at a minimum — to flush out any contaminants or the Warranty will be void.
- Seized Compressor Clutch — As explained above, the Compressor Clutch Pulley shares the accessory belt with other engine components. If the Clutch Pulley is unable to engage or disengage from engine power and spin freely (and you’ve verified the voltage), you may have a seized Compressor. The Parts included this Kit may not be an adequate fix for your problem, and your mechanic should consider replacing the A/C Condenser as well.
