A/C condenser

Anybody know if there is a DIY on replacing the A/C condenser? or past experience doing that repair.

Seems like not too many A/C mechanics around here or knowledgeable folks
on the A/C system.

if you remove the front bumper you'll notice a cross bar above the radiator/condenser. This bar is held down by 4 bolts (2 on each side). Remove those bolts and lift the cross bar out. Once you disconnect any hoses and fitting attached to the rad and condenser you can then just lift the rad/condenser assembly out as it just sits on rubber dampeners.

The rad and condenser are just connected with clips. Unclip those and they should separate. Do the opposite to re install then pull a vacuum on your a/c system to make sure there are no leaks. Then add 1/4 ounce of uv dye and re charge your ac with just over 12 ounces of r134a.

It's not a big job and once you remove the bumper you'll see what I mean about the cross bar. The hood latch is held onto it with 3 10mm bolts so you'll have to remove that as well.
