    Vacuum out refrigerant, remove glovebox and trim on passenger side footwell, and air duct. Under hood remove panel at firewall. Disconnect lines going through firewall. Back inside, disconnect lines and condensor slides out. You will probably want to get some new o-rings and new expansion valve. Recharge system.
