Well done.
Looks like you're set for the imminent fall of civilization. (below)
(I, for one, would Not want to be on the receiving end of your hose-handled flail.) :to_order:

big fun
 
that's good to know. i didn't want to get too ambitious.. -already have a box w/ close to 40lbs. of parts that i've removed w/ no problem. i plan to do a little research before i go after the rest of it.

"hose handled flail" -i was hoping someone found that amusing. saw the picture and thought the same thing. it's by far the most dangerous looking thing that i've pulled out of the car so far..

Thread jack! but it's related. Just had a single belt conversion done so im looking for a DIY or some guidance on how to remove all AC related components. Currently only the AC compressor is removed. Where is everything else located? Thanks

For starters, there are two a/c lines in the engine bay that can be removed if they weren't taken out along with the compressor.

Also right back there is the a/c bracket - it's aluminum and can be cut down if you do not intend to run a/c in the future. It is fairly tricky to get the bracket out in the first place and requires removing the engine carrier and swindling the bracket past the crank pulley.

That's as far as I have gone with a/c removal..

Did you cut the lines to get them out? Looks like it in the photo..

yertyat 05-17-2010 05:36 PM

o.k., i cut the hoses, thats as far as i went. i'll have to do my homework but to get to the rest of it requires removing rear wheel, and wheel well panel? then would i follow the hoses up to the front of the car? i remember reading something about the compressor mount having to be cut. -wasn't ready to go that far quite yet...

I followed the lines only as far as the left side of the engine bay. There are two fittings there for removal - in fact, pretty sure they require the wheel to be off to remove.

The a/c bracket takes a fair bit of work. It essentially sits behind the engine carrier, and also has two little tabs on it that extend behind the crank pulley. It is relatively obvious how it comes off when you look at it, just a bit clunky to do the first time.

Once it is out, the material is soft and easily cut - but then there is definitely no going back.

"no going back",.. that happened a long time ago! thanks for the insight.

There's a thread on here somewhere that quotes the aircon components (compressor, hoses and condensor) as being 47 lbs. After lifting the box where all my bits got dumped into when they were taken off.....I would say that figure was pretty spot on. :thumbsup:
