Hey guys.

Did a little search and didn't find what I was looking for.

I have a nice custom hole in my ac condenser and I'm planning to fix it. With some help of my mobile ac recharger dude. Said the more I can do for him the better.

Has anyone replaced theirs?
Do you need to remove the radiator

Does anyone have a manual with diagrams on this very topic?

Thanks
-Nathan

1. Using the refrigerant recovery system, drain the refrigerant.

2. Disconnect the ground cable from battery.

3. Disconnect the high pressure hose and pipe from the condenser.

4. Remove the radiator brackets.

5. Remove the front bumper face.

6. Remove two bolts. While lifting the condenser, pull out through space between the radiator and the radiator panel.

thanks rbimdxe

managed to get the unit out without removing the radiator with help from the air con bloke - however we cracked the neck of the radiator shifting it in the process!

from research its seams this is a pretty common issue, my rad already has a green top and is quite brittle from 2011! rediculous
so far ive siliconed the crap out of it to stop the hemoraging and looking for a aluminium replacement.

air con is instantly cooler, replaced the stock unit with an XT condenser from wreckers ($120)
