    A/C Removal

    i want to remove ALL components of the A/C except i cant make ANY sense of what the tsrm online manual says, it has nothing for removal just all installation and troubleshooting

    if anyone knows where i can find a diagram or map with all A/C components and what not i would be so greatfull

    Also is there any cons. of removing?? is it just unbolt and done...
    and please don't reply (just remove the belt) i want to do it properly..

    thanks in advance!!!

    I just removed anything related to the ac. I like the look, and it's a lot easier to work on things now.

    you've got that right. once that stuff is gone the oil filter can be removed easily from up top.

    as far as removal is concerned, make sure you let all the freon out before taking the compressor out. it's illegal to let it out in the air but getting caught is all you've really got to worry about.

    Minor warning, do NOT remove the electrical sensor just inboard of the AC receiver/dryer (by the radiator) as it is also part of the heating system. Remove it and you will not have heat (seeing you are in Canada, figure you might want that).

    Only saying that because there have been several cases of folks pulling it with the AC system.

    Also, unless you are making a race car, disassembling the dash to pull the cabin portion isn't worth the effort and risks damaging your heater core.

    It isn't on the AC system diagram in this thread. But when folks pull the AC system they often remove it (ambient temperature sensor)
