    I was trying to look up the valve that is on the side of the A/C compressor. It's the valve that's designed to blow before anything else in the A/C does. Is this something I can order from a parts shop and if so, what would it be called?

    My mechanic mentioned "high pressure valve" but I got nothing from that.

    If it's a safety valve, it's probably called a pressure release valve
