WARNING
When refrigerant lines are disconnected you must IMMEDIATELY cap all openings to prevent the entry of moisture in the system resulting in contamination and corrosion of internal components. ALSO, minimize the amount of time that the system remains discharged by planning the job well before hand. No matter how well you cap the lines, some moisture is bound to enter and damage the system over time if it remains in a discharged state.

To install:
  1. Place the receiver/drier in the retaining bracket and connect the refrigerant lines. You must use new seals coated with refrigerant oil.
  2.  
  3. Fasten the bracket bolt to the receiver/drier.
  4.  
  5. Tighten the refrigerant lines to 52 inch lbs. (6 Nm).
  6.  
  7. Evacuate, leak test and charge the air conditioning system as outlined in General Information & Maintenance .
  8.  

After you have made repairs you should take the vehicle to a licensed air conditioning technician to have the system tested for leaks then recharged. Newer air conditioning systems equipped with R134a refrigerant are NOT compatible with R-12 refrigerant.

  1. Connect the negative (-) battery cable and check operation.
