Default A/c questions

Hello I will be installing a new ac compressor because mine is on the way out and I was wondering is it the same as a regular car or does hybrid require anything special I should know about? (2010 Insight ex)

Same as regular car. Only Pulley driven. They tried the hybrid electric compressor on the HCH2 with its higher voltage battery, and it probably helped turn that battery into one of the worst ever made.

The voltage of the G2 Insight hybrid battery is too low to be effective for an A/C compressor.

To my knowledge, the high resistance oil in "hybrid" compressors are ester based.

Autozone says PAG 46
