Go to your local auto parts and buy the spring release tool for the Ford a/c line. Not expensive, but you need this to release the spring lock on the lines.

A 99 4cyl ford contour. The a.c. compressor not kicking in. I know fuses and relAys,can't find a diagrapgm anywhere ? Can anyone help if so u can text me at 4 1 seven 6 9 five 0 2 six four...thank you

In all Fords of the 90's the biggest single reason the AC compressor doesn't kick in is because the refridgerant charge has leaked out due to a defective compressor shaft seal and the "O" rings connections of the AC line seals near the conndensor.

1999 Ford Contour. 2.0L engine. I'm trying to bypass a/c compressor because it is eating up clutches. I'm buying serpentine belts for engines w/o ac but they do not fit(too long). I've checked...

At Auto Zone, ask for part number 34223. It is a bypass pulley that you can replace the a/c compressor with so you can use the original belt without issue.

1999 ford contour fuel pump removal

YOU will need the car on a hoist, doing it on the ground is almost impossiable, disconnect the filler neck at top, remove the straps, lower tank slow and disconnect wiring and fuel hoses, you need a special tool to remove the gas line retainer clips.
