The condensor is attached to the front of the radiator. 1. Make sure your A/C system is discharged. Remove the cross braces, water overflow tank, Remove the Battery and tray.
2. Remove the front lower air dam. Drain the water coolant and disconnect the upper and lower radiator hoses from the radiator.
3. Disconnect the transmission lines from the radiator, front right side. They have a plastic collar that slides off the connection, then a release "c" clip that can be carefully pulled out with a scribe. Pull the line out of radiator. Have a catch pan to collect oil
4. Disconnect the A/C lines at the front left side of the engine compartment. Make sure you support both sides of the mount when breaking the torque. I found removing the air filter and box necessary.
5. remove the cooling fan assy.
6 Remove the radiator/condensor assy. The condensor will have a receiver/dryer attached the driver side, it should come with your new condensor. It must be changed when ever you open the A/C system. If you don't have it, buy a Haines manual from any parts store. I found my condensor for $139, most places wante $160 to 300. Good luck. I also suggest to have the coolant system flushed and replaced with regular antifreeze. The Dexcool will allow internal engine corrosion. Go figure.
