REMOVAL SERVICE POINTS



<<A>> DISCHARGE FLEXIBLE HOSE/SUCTION FLEXIBLE HOSE DISCONNECTION


caution Use the plug which is not breathable because A/C compressor oil or receiver have high hygroscopicity.
Plug the hose nipple removed to prevent the entry of dust and dirt.

<<B>> A/C COMPRESSOR AND CLUTCH ASSEMBLY REMOVAL


Be careful not to spill the A/C compressor oil and remove the A/C compressor.

INSTALLATION SERVICE POINT



>>A<< A/C COMPRESSOR AND CLUTCH ASSEMBLY INSTALLATION


If a new compressor is installed, first adjust the amount of oil according to the procedures described below, and then install the compressor.
1.Measure the amount X mL of oil within the removed compressor.
2.Drain (from the new compressor) the amount of oil calculated according to the following formula, and then install the new compressor.
New compressor oil amount = 70mL
70 mL - X mL = Y mL
note Y mL indicates the amount of oil in the refrigerant line, the condenser, the evaporator, etc.

3.Tighten A/C compressor assembly mounting bolts to the specified torque in the order of number shown in the figure.
Tightening torque: 23 ± 6 N·m
