To install:


NOTE
If a new compressor and magnetic clutch is installed without removing some oil, due to the oil remaining in the pipes of the vehicle, the oil amount will be too large. This prevents heat exchange in the refrigerant cycle and causes refrigeration system failure.


NOTE
If the volume of oil remaining in the removed compressor and magnetic clutch is too small, check for oil leakage.


NOTE
Be sure to use ND-OIL 8 or equivalent for compressor oil.

  1. When replacing the cooler compressor assembly with a new one, gradually discharge the inert gas (helium) from the service valve, and drain the following amount of oil from the vents indicated by the arrows in the illustration before installation.
    NOTE
    The drain bolt and washer can be reused.

  2.  
  3. Standard: AC (Oil capacity inside the new compressor and magnetic clutch: 160 + 15 cc (5.4 + 0.51 fl. oz.)) - (Remaining oil amount in the removed compressor and magnetic clutch) = (Oil amount to be removed from the new compressor when replacing).
  4.  
  5. Install the compressor and pulley and the engine wire harness bracket with the 4 bolts. Tighten the bolts to 18 ft. lbs. (25 Nm).
