Replacing radiator on 1993 escort

How do I release the R-132 refridgerant from the A/C unit of the car before removing the condensor and the radiator?

    Maybe I was incorrect in my terms, but the stuff that I have now in my A/C unit is the stuff that is not harmful to the ozone, I thought I could just release it and refill it once I put the new radiator into the car.

    If its environmentally friendly you can remove the valve stem (similar to a tire valve)in the lines they are usually near back of the compressor.or you can use a screw driver or something to depress the valve stem to release the pressure.But be careful not to get too close as the refridgerant is not good for you to come in contact with(wear apropriate safety gear)

Need to remove and replace a radiator


You will need to remove the headlamps, bumper skin, radiator support, and unbolt the a/c condensor from the radiator. With some time, a metric socket rail and patience you can take it out, it's pretty easy. Just make sure you don't damage the condensor or new radiator during repair.

remove the battery and the battery tray,the fluid line and the two bolts that hold on the clutch master and remove.you may need to bleed the new one at the slave cylinder by having someone depress the pedal and letting the air out and tighten the line again before they release the pedal,but i think by pushing the pedal up and down a few times it will be ok. if the shifter wont go into gear or the car starts to move when only slightly moving the pedal of the floor then bleed it.
