PostSubject: Whether to remove A/C condensor?   Wed Jul 21, 2010 10:28 pm

Well my upper radiator hose attachment is leaking pretty bad, so ordered a new BeCool radiator. Just wondering if it would be worth removing the A/C condensor to help with better cooling. The cr is a convertible and in 5 yrs of ownership, I have never used the AC. Do you think I will see improved cooling by removing the condensor? Also how hard is it to discharge the Freon? Any suggestions would be great.

First of all you should ask your question on another forum because only three people use this one. One being me, and I know virtually nothing about cars except how to drive them. Do you know if the A/C even works? Remember it only comes on when you turn it on, or in the winter when you turn on the defroster. It lets the car have dehumidified air so that the defroster can work quicker/better. If you use the car in the winter you might consider keeping it. If you’re not using it regular basis it’s probably shot already. You might be able to release the Freon by sticking a pin in the hose and release the gas slowly. Don’t quote me, because I’m a dimwit when it comes to this stuff. Good luck

THe AC works perfectly, actually colder than my daily driver. I dio you the car in the fall but not sure I would need defroster then and my heater core blew so I have no heat.

Pull it. I hear fixing the heater core on that car is a SOB. The A/C also draws a lot from the engine when it’s on.

I would leave all alone. If it ain't broke don't fix it or in this case touch it. I know the car is a convertable but there might come a day were you are driving in 90 + degree weather with the sun beating down on you and that will be the day you will regret removing the a/c....

A very good choice, sometimes you just need to talk to someone to reason things out. Stay cool.

I would leave it alone and cleanit as much as possible ,,plus the resale value is always better if the a/c is intact just ask lou.
