Question about Cars & Trucks
Posted by Anonymous on
Physically changing the compressor is easy. Just two freon lines, a belt, one clutch wire, and a few bolts.
But first you need to capture the old freon, which needs a vacuum pump and tank.
It is technically illegal to just vent it, and it is dangerous because of the pressure and cold. (wear eye protection and gloves)
You also need to add the right amount of the right type of oil, depending on the type of freon (a 2003 should be R134a).
But instructions should come with the new compressor.
Then you need to add the correct amount of freon.
If you saved it, then you just put that back in.
Otherwise the instructions should tell you how much to add.
