Compare the weights of the old and the new dryers. The new one probably is much lighter. That means you need to install the new one, because the old one is loaded with crud and moisture.

most manuals recommend that you replace the accumulator whenever you replace the compressor.

Why do you keep getting metal in your 2007 Malibu ac filter?

More than likely the metal is coming from the compressor. Replace the compressor along with the accumulator/receiver dryer and orifice tube/expansion valve.
