If you can move it out of way without disconnecting lines then no do not haver to discharge. if you have to remove lines to get compressor out of your way then yes will need to have discharged. find a local shop with recovery equipment and ask how much they will charge to evacuate and charge back up when you complete job

Do i have to remove my timing belt in order to replace my water pump in my 1997 ford thunderbird lx its a 4.6 v8

Your car use3s a timing chain not a belt. The water pump will be serviced by first removing the serpentine belt and then removing the water pump pulley and then finally removing the water pump. It is a fairly easy pump to replace.

If you have any further question please ask I I will be happy to help.

How do you remove the starter out of a 2003 ford focus?

1. Disconnect the car's negative battery cable.
2. Raise the car's front end with its floor jack and support it on axle stands; make sure you set the parking brake first.
3. Disconnect the air cleaner's outlet tube from the throttle body if your model has an SPI engine; loosen the hose clamp with pliers.
4. Unbolt and disconnect the power-steering pump using your wrench and set the pump aside. Do not disconnect or stretch the pump's lines. This should only be needed if your Focus has a 2.3 liter engine.
5. Unscrew the starter motor's mounting bolts using the wrench and then pull the motor off the dowel sticks on the transmission housing; you might need to angle the motor to remove it. Unscrew the nuts and disconnect the motor's wiring.

1. Connect the wiring and nuts to the replacement starter motor and slide it onto the dowel sticks, then tighten the mounting bolts with the wrench.
2. Reconnect all components that were disconnected--bolt the power-steering pump in place and connect the air cleaner outlet tube using its clamp.
3. Lower the car off the axle stands and reconnect the battery cable

Describe how to change a blower motor in a 1997

one. open pass side door-look under dash area towards right side (may have a plastic cover to take off before you can see under dash) look for big round (about at least 6-10 inches diamator) looking thing may look triangular with three screws at the corners with a big connector going to it. - Unplug the connector by pushing in the little tab first and pulling apart. - remove the three screws- idk exactly what they are- may me phillips head, torx head, or if its a ford prob has a small 7mm or 8mm bolt head- for that you would need a small 1/4 inch ratchet and 1/4 inch drive 7 or 8 mm socket. -Once you remove the screws the blower motor should drop right down. replace with new one and install in reverse order.
