REMOVAL

CAUTION: When replacing an A/C compressor which has failed internally, perform the following procedures to prevent contamination of the refrigerant system:

  • If A/C Flusher is available, perform the Flushing procedure.
  • If A/C Flusher is not available, perform the Refrigerant System Filtering After A/C Component Replacement procedure.
  • Replace the A/C evaporator core orifice.

NOTE: Replacement of the suction accumulator is not required when repairing the air conditioning system except when there is physical evidence of system contamination from a failed A/C compressor or damage to the suction accumulator.

  1. Disconnect the battery.
  2. Perform the Refrigerant Discharging and Recovery Procedure to remove the refrigerant.
  3. Remove the drive belt.
