Use to own a 2002 CRV. The compressors were known to self destruct and the dealer will only replace the entire system. Didn't happen in the 2 ~ 3 years I own it and my friend is the original owner. Sold it to a friend's brother at around 230K and was still OK. The video was to show what compressed air will do when you pressurize to clean it.

The TXV or Orifice Tube should always come out of the system for any cleaning.

Yes I got that. I priced changing out everything except the evaporator. About $500.
