To install:

  1. Installation is the reverse order of removal. Note the following:
    1. If you're installing a new A/C condenser, you must calculate the amount of refrigerant oil to be removed from it.
    2.  
    3. Replace the O-rings with new ones at each fitting, and apply a thin coat of refrigerant oil before installing them. Be sure to use the correct O-rings for HFC-134a (R-134a) to avoid leakage.
    4.  
    5. Use refrigerant oil (DENSO® ND-OIL 8) for HFC-134a DENSO® piston type A/C compressor only.
    6.  
    7. To avoid contamination, do not return the oil to the container once dispensed, and never mix it with other refrigerant oils.
    8.  
    9. Immediately after using the oil, reinstall the cap on the container, and seal it to avoid moisture absorption.
    10.  
    11. Do not spill the refrigerant oil on the vehicle; it may damage the paint; if the refrigerant oil contacts the paint, wash it off immediately.
    12.  
    13. Be careful not to damage the radiator fins when installing the A/C compressor and the A/C condenser fan shroud.
