    Hello,

    1st post and long time lurker here :), My AC doesn't work, light comes on, compressor doesn't and my ac condenser seems to have been hit by a rock or something and that caused it to leak refridgerant all over. Got it pressure tested and there was no pressure throughout my AC system. So I'm just wondering how hard is it to replace? I have a 3rd party one that I bought and it doesn't look like theirs too much to hookup, 2 hoses/lines and the mounting bracket? Do I need to replace anything like O rings? Id rather install it myself if its easy enough.

    Thanks for any info.

    Did you replace your condenser or have it done at a shop? I'm about to do the replacement myself, wondering if you have to remove the radiator first as it states in the repair manual or is there a easier way to remove it? Thanks for any input.
