There was a loud rattling noise coming from my air conditioner. My husband took a look at it. When he turned the air conditioner on and went around to the front of the car. The ball bearings in my compressor failed and the compressor exploded. Shards of metal flew from under the car. From the research I have done there have been a lot of Honda crvs doing the same. If anyone was standing near the car at the time of explosion, they could have been hurt.
