How do you replace the AC compressor in 1997 Ford Taurus?
I have just finished my replacement and will be glad to share the information. It is step-by-step so a bit long. Please contact me and I will send a word sheet for the process. Thanks 78Vettelvr email: [mailto:MSGT4SPED@AOL.COM MSGT4SPED@AOL.COM] My file has been lost so I am removing this reply. Sorry but I will try to find the step-by-step procedur and will re-post. 78vettelvr (Steve H.)
Remove passenger side fan that is attached to the radiator. Drain freon out of system. Remove electrial plug on compressor. Remove bolt that is located between the two hoses on an aluminum block attached to compressor. Remove the serpentine belt. Remove the 4 bolts that are located on the radiator side of the compressor. You now have it off but be careful not to damage the radiator when lifting it out.
