REMOVAL AND INSTALLATION



danger When servicing the high voltage system parts, always shut off the high voltage by removing the service plug (refer to ).
Pre-removal operation
  • Discharging refrigerant (Refer to ).
  • Air Cleaner assembly Removal (Refer to GROUP 15 - Air Cleaner ).
  • Engine room side cover, Engine room under cover A, B removal (Refer to GROUP 51 - Under Cover .)

Post-installation operation
  • Engine room side cover, Engine room under cover A, B installation (Refer to GROUP 51 - Under Cover ).
  • Air Cleaner assembly Installation (Refer to GROUP 15 - Air Cleaner ).
  • Charging refrigerant (Refer to ).

caution
  • Use the plug which is not breathable because A/C compressor oil or receiver have high hygroscopicity.
  • For the compressor oil and installation oil for the piping O-ring, use the oil MA68EV dedicated for the A/C compressor EV24AN5. If an oil other then the MA68EV is used, even if it is only a small amount, the electric insulation is considerably deteriorated and a leakage may occur.
Plug the hose nipple removed to prevent the entry of dust and dirt.

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

INSTALLATION SERVICE POINT



>>A<< A/C COMPRESSOR ASSEMBLY INSTALLATION


When installing the new A/C compressor, install the A/C compressor after adjusting the oil volume as follows.
1.Measure the oil level in the removed A/C compressor assembly.(X cm3)
2.Drain the compressor oil from a new A/C compressor assembly and dispose of it. The compressor oil may absorb humidity, which will deteriorate electrical insulation performance.
3.Calculate the amount of oil (Y cm3) according to the formulae below. Refill that amount of the compressor oil (supplied as a container) into the new A/C compressor assembly
Xcm3+20cm3 = Y cm3
4.Tighten the A/C compressor assembly mounting bolts to the specified torque.
Tightening torque: 23 ± 6 N·m
