    Hey guys,

    I'm about to pull the motor out of my CRX but it has an AC system. Do I have to purge the AC system before removing it? What is the proper procedure to disconnect the AC. I want to make sure to do it right so I don't have some toxic shit spraying all over the place while i pull the motor.

    in a vehicle which is going to use the AC, you can just leave all the lines attached and it will be ok, however it is easier to remove the compressor and draining the system in an open air place will be fine, we did it on my buddies car in our in door shop class and that created a bit a problem, a nice thick toxic fog in the building, but outside is fine...

    if you want to put the ac on the new motor just unbolt the compressor and bungee it to the side of the engine bay so you dont have to release the refridgerant

    This is not Swap-related. This is the Swap-related forum.

    Try again in the right forum.
