Condenser replacement on 2002 Focus 16. Zetec

4 posts in this topic

The air conditioning condenser on my 2002 1.6 Focus Zetec needs replaced.

I have had a quick look at it and it looks like a complete pain of a job to do. Why do they

never make these things easy!

Can anyone confirm (or deny) that it's doable.

I am a very competent mechanic but it looks (at first glance) that the complete front

of the Focus needs to come away to allow access to the condenser.

Any help much appreciated.

Thanks

Ken

Alz,

Condenser is completely rotten at bottom so any gas will have escaped long time ago. Aware

that restoring gas and oil is a specialist job but was really wondering about the actual

replacement of the condenser itself. I would like to do that myself and then get a mobile

air conditioning guy in to replenishj the gas to make it all work.

Thanks

Ken

"changing it is not easy!" air con as a lot of parts, (condenser/evaporator/accumulator) and alot of pipes, if you feel up to it, and its not under pressure, have a go, try second hand parts, to keep the cost down, use a good manual as well..
