I don't know. I do know that those parts weren't changed. There are other things on the receipt, like PAG oil (I have to look at it again).

I didn't inquire about those other parts when the job was done, since this guy is a highly regarded AC expert and I figured I was in good hands.

He even made sure it was a brand new compressor, rather than rebuilt. I probably would have been better off with a rebuilt.
