When you pull off the front grill of the car, you mt notice that the air conditioning condenser is all wet. This is because it is leaking refrigerant. Fortunately, radiator and condenser replacement is usually a piece of cake.
Replace Your Condensor at Home
You'll likely just need to unbolt the cross member on top, which should come right off and give you access to the radiator. You might only need to unbolt the lines if all of the refrigerant has already leaked out. However, if it had refrigerant in it, you would have to use a recycling machine to use the refrigerant over again. If all of the refrigerant has leaked out, and there is nothing left inside, you can just take the lines off. Once you unbolt it, the line comes right off, and you can do the same on the bottom line. To keep air from getting into the AC system while you are working on it, stick a little piece of a paper towel inside of the exposed line.
Now, the condenser should just slide right out easily. You might have to wiggle it a bit, but that's it. Before you put the new condenser on, you'll want to put some PAG oil in it because the old condenser probably has some oil in it, and you don't want to run the system low. Just pour it right in the hole. Then, you'll get the new condenser and slide it in. Get a little AC oil, and put it on the o-ring that's on the outside, so it feels better. Slide the condenser on and stick the bolt back in. You'll want to tighten it up until the surfaces are flush. Be sure to put the bottom line on tight too.
