REMOVAL AND INSTALLATION 
SUCTION HOSE
NOTE
  1. While installing each of the removed refrigerant line, replace the O-ring (if exists) at each fitting with new one and apply specified lubricant.
  2. Observe the specified tightening torque at each fitting.
  3. Be careful not to bend or twist refrigerant lines in order to install them easily.
  4. After installation, evacuate, charge and test the air conditioning system.
  1. Discharge refrigerant from the air conditioning system.

  1. Disconnect evaporator side fitting of the suction hose.

  1. Disconnect compressor side fitting of the suction hose.

  1. Remove the suction hose.

  1. Installation is the reverse order of removal.

DISCHARGE HOSE
  1. Discharge refrigerant from the air conditioning system.

  1. Detach the power steering fluid reservoir from its mounting bracket by pulling upward.

  1. Remove the engine coolant reservoir.

  1. Remove the mounting bolt of the discharge hose mounting clamp.

  1. Disconnect compressor side fitting of the discharge hose.

  1. Disconnect discharge pipe side fitting of the discharge hose.

  1. Remove the discharge hose.

  1. Installation is the reverse order of removal.

DISCHARGE PIPE
  1. Discharge refrigerant from the air conditioning system.

  1. Detach the power steering fluid reservoir from its mounting bracket by pulling upward.

  1. Remove the engine coolant reservoir.

  1. Remove the mounting bolt of the discharge hose mounting clamp.

  1. Remove the clip which is holding both of the discharge pipe and the liquid tube (C).

  1. Disconnect compressor side fitting of the discharge pipe.

  1. Disconnect condenser side fitting of the discharge pipe.

  1. Remove the discharge pipe.

  1. Installation is the reverse order of removal.

LIQUID TUBE (A)
  1. Discharge refrigerant from the air conditioning system.

  1. Remove the radiator upper grille.

  1. Disconnect condenser side fitting of the liquid tube (A).

  1. Disconnect receiver drier side fitting of the liquid tube (A).

  1. Remove the liquid tube (A).

  1. Installation is the reverse order of removal.
