1992 Civic VX Hatchback 1.5L D15Z1/ 315,000 mi -- 100% stock
At the time I bought I noticed a generic switch that the seller had installed. I asked him about it and basically when the AC pressure switch died he had hard wired power to the compressor via the switch...it was...not how I would have done it. A wire literally jammed into an open port of the fuse block routed to the switch and into the engine compartment.
-Did he burn out the compressor or clutch?
-Did he over pressurize the system? (almost certainly, and if he did what would the status of the o-rings be?)
-Honda Parts Now show o-ring and seal kit as discontinued. I found one on eBay but the fit calls out only coups, was there any significant difference in the seals and o-rings between the hatches and coupes? any reason this wouldn't work for my car?
