    Solution: I ended up cutting away any of the firewall insulation where the side cover pressed against. It's easy to see the areas where it was rubbing. I also broke the two plastic guide pins in the heater box that help the cover but it was causing me issues. What I did was make sure none of the...
  2. Problems & Solutions RSX
    Bought the car a few years ago and never had a/c, so I decided to get it fixed since I was tired of torturing myself on my daily commutes in 100 F temps with max humidity. On Monday July 29 I had the a/c fixed. The shop supposedly replaced the fan, compressor, condenser, and some o-rings...

    Had no A/C since I bought t he car in December. Had local garage charge the system. System is fully charged, but does not work. Fan switch on dash does. Garage seems to think its a wiring problem in the dash. They say they cannot find a ground from the dash and the wiring. It's a # 503 connector...

    2005 base model. My 30a A/C condenser fan fuse will pop instantly when you turn on the ac. When I unplug the compressor, the fan will turn on and off normally. When I unplug the fan, the fuse will still pop when I turn the ac on. If I jumper the fuse with a wire, with everything plugged in...

    I let the mechanic by my house inspect my A/C system because it had been blowing hot air for about a month now. He told me there were 2 things wrong. One was the "actuator is stuck on hot". Then he said something about "the switch". I couldn't really understand him he had an old country accent...

    Story Time: Recently, the RSX went past 150k miles and I took it in for a tuneup and 150k scheduled maintenance. The RPM has been going up and down from 1200 to 500 RPM during idle. It is supposed to be at steady 850-950, but it kept going down below 500 and it almost shuddered to a stall after...

    Hey everyone. So I had a bit of a problem last weekend. I was upgrading my radiator fans when I heard some hissing sound and green dye everywhere. Found out my a/c line had touched the radiator and made a little hole and all my ac spewed out. I have no clue what this line is called but it's the...

    Im swapping a k24a2 into my 04 rsx. I want to keep a/c. What can i and cant i use.
  12. Problems & Solutions RSX
    My A/C worked fine until I recently replaced the radiator and now it no longer comes on. Is there something I may have left off or knocked off by accident because I cant imagine it going bad at exactly the same time. Any suggestions would be most appreciated. Thanks so much. Alex

    Had a hard time finding This answer. This is for a k24a2 longblock. No a/c but has power-steering. Belt Length needs to be 55.25-55.5. The belt size is 11.9 x 4 x 1. You need a Dayco 5070553 belt. $26 on Amazon. Gates - 5070553 (last 3 numbers is the belt size: 553 = 55.3) If you go to...

    Problem: A/C will initially work after car has just started, but then after 10 minutes will start to show this problem. Also appears to be more affected when the car stopped. A/C compressor shuts itself off for a period of time (during which warm air starts to blow) then turns back on. Hissing...

    I have a water leak and I have no idea where it is coming from. My passenger side front carpet gets soaked, but only during heavy rain. In light rain, there is no leak. I have taken out all the carpet and had another person hose down the car while I checked inside and it does not leak in water...

    Hey everyone. I want to apologize if this has been already explained in another thread. I have searched and searched and can't find a proper answer to my situation. So when I start the car and it is at idle, the A/C will blow cold. Then when I am driving over 50-60 mph, I will hear a "hissing"...

    So, when I bought my RSX, the guy I bought it from told me the A/C just needed to be recharged. Well that was a lie, there was a huge hole in the condenser. Literally looked like a damn bullet hole. It's not seized as I was able to twist it by hand, the belt it self turns as well. Ran the DTC...

    Here's what I've encountered the past couple of weeks. When I started using my A/C after the winter it would take a while for it to kick in. I had to play around with the settings to get it going and then it eventually does get going. But I also noticed a weird smell coming out of the vents on...
