Note:The accumulator/drier should be replaced whenever

the compressor is replaced Caution:On models with a Delco

Loc 2 or Theftlock audio system be sure the lockout feature is

turned off before proceeding * Have the AC system

discharged.Disconnect the neagtive battery cable * Clean the

compressor thourghly around the refrigerant line fittings * Remove

the serpentine belt * Raise and support it securely vehicle on

jackstands * Disconnect the electrical connector from the AC

compressor * Disconnect the suction and discharge lines from the

compressor.Both lines are mounted to the back of the compressor

with a plate secured by one bolt.Plug the open fittings and discard

the seals between the plate and compressor * Unbolt and remove the

rear compressor mount.It may be necessary to remove the right side

engine mount bolt and raise the engine to access the rear

compressor mount bolts * Remove the compressor to front bracket

bolts and nuts and remove the compressor from the engine
