Took my truck into the shop because it was not blowing very cold just a month after an AC service was done and a supposed leak check, oops guess they missed something. I found out that my condenser is leaking and in need of replacement, shop wants 900.00 to replace it and since I just had to replace BOTH of the A/C systems in my house my bank account is looking pretty lean right now. I would like to do this myself and have read the procedure in my repair manual three times and it SEEMS quite straight forward, however in past experiences reading about it is quite different from actually doing it. Looking to see if any of you have any tips or tricks on replacing the condenser. I am going to a shop to have the system evacuated, is this something they usually charge for? I have also searched the threads on here and read all through them, but didn’t see anything on the 04, can I get away with not removing the radiator like most have? Any of your tips will be appreciated.
