Change AC condensor

Does anyone know of a video out there of someone changing an AC condenser on a 2007 Armada?

Not a video but I would assume that the radiator change topic on this forum would help you. If you don't take out the radiator I guess you would have to take off the front bumper.

I'm going to be changing mine out in about a week or so, as soon as it arrives.

Its outlined on pages MTC-145/146 of the FSM (at least on the 2004 model)


1. Discharge the refrigerant. Refer to MTC-136, "HFC-134a (R-134a) Service Procedure" .
2. Remove the radiator. Refer to CO-10, "RADIATOR" .
CAUTION:
Be careful not to damage the core surface of the condenser and the radiator.
3. Disconnect the high-pressure flexible hose and the high-pressure pipe from the condenser.
CAUTION:
Cap or wrap the joint of the pipe with suitable material such as vinyl tape to avoid the entry of air.
4. Disconnect the refrigerant pressure sensor connector.
 Remove the refrigerant pressure sensor from the condenser
as necessary.
5. Lift the condenser out of the mounting grommets to remove the
condenser.

I'm hoping I can manage to do it without disconnecting the lower rad hose and draining too much coolant

OK, I just completed it in about 2 hours.

I found a easy writeup to follow on Titantalk and didnt follow any of the FSM directions

Quote:
1) Remove grill and headlights
2) remove 2 radiator bolts off top (8mm)
3) remove 6 radiator support bolts (3/side under headlights)
4) make sure A/C pressure is gone, then disconnect lines (1/side)
5) remove condensor brackets from front top of radiator
6) slightly pull forward the radiator support (entire front) to allow enough gap to remove condensor
7) Install new condensor and reinstall brackets, bolts, etc..
8) Take to an AC service place and have them purge the system then recharge it! DONE
The headlights have 2 bolts on top and 2 underneath accessible from inside the wheel liner. The hardest part of the job was getting the headlights out and back in and sliding the new condenser between the rad and the rad support without damaging it (I had my lady help keep the 2 separated while I slid the new condenser in)
