AC Compressor Solenoid Replacement: Ever heard of RKX Tech?


So there is something wrong with my AC right now; on start up I get some noise out of the vent that ends up settling down somewhat and can hear it for a bit when I turn it off. I am also not getting much cold air at all and think that I might have a faulty compressor.

I took it in a few months back and had a recharge, and turned out the pressure was high which could have been from the previous owner or a symptom of a bad solenoid possibly.

I did a little bit of research and found a solenoid replacement that has helped some people so I thought I might as well give it a shot instead of potentially spending a huge amount of money for a compressor and install.

I am taking my car in this Friday to a local tuner shop for a diagnosis and would like to bring a solenoid with me if that ends up being the potential issue.

Has anyone heard of RKX Tech before? I found their solenoid on Amazon and it fits my model number.

Thank you for your time.
