Replaced my condenser today. Simple repair: 1. Ensured all R1234yf has leaked out. New gauges purchased as the high and low pressure ports are different than 134a. 2. Shut off engine/remove negative battery cable. 3. Use 5/16” nut driver to loosen intake plenum and air cleaner. 4. Pull red clip up and depress black clip at airflow sensor connector. Remove zip tie clip from hole in air box, place MAF connector out of the way. 5. Depress 2 pcv retainers and remove crankcase piping from plenum. 6. Gently work the plenum to throttle body intake hose loose. Same thing with the hose at the air box. 7. Remove upper and lower air box/filter. 8. Remove 2 bolts holding radiator in place against the core support. 9. Remove the upper air dam (sits on top of condenser/ radiator). Has 4 clips across the top and 2 on each end. 10. Push radiator toward engine. Remove the caps and clips holding the integrated transmission cooler lines in place. 11. Remove bracket bolt on passenger end of condenser hose. Also remove the hose retaining nut releasing both a/c lines. 12. Release the plastic clips holding the condenser to the radiator. 13. Get another person to hold the radiator toward while you pull the old condenser out. 14. Transfer all air dam pieces to new condenser. 15. Add 2 oz pag oil designed for r1234yf to the condenser INSTALL IN REVERSE ORDER.
