2000 TJ AC Condenser - removal
So I have been working on getting my AC running for the past couple of weeks (In between work and the baby). I replaced the compressor, drier and low pressure line (Orfice tube as well). When I got the system pressurized the compressor got the system up to 450 - 500 psi. (No leaks, that's good) That's one hell of a compressor, but definitely too high for an AC system. Talking to the AC guy that hooked me up, we decided it was my condenser that was causing the pressure issue and it needed to be tested / replaced. Not a problem, I can do that.
I bought the new condenser, and proceeded to remove the old one only to find that it is held in by 4 bolts with some weird rubber and metal nut on the other end. Looks like some type of nut covered in rubber.
Has anyone had any experience with this, how do I get the bolts out so I can install the new condenser and get this AC running for my little boy. (It's hot in So. Fla.)
Any help would be appreciated.
