Now it’s time for line C. This line comes from the bottom of the compressor to the evaporator. Bolt it to the bottom of the condenser. Make sure not to damage the O-ring, and run the line all the way to the evaporator and install with a 10 mm bolt. It runs alongside the OEM line. Now it’s time for line C.

Next, make sure that you connect the wire from your old AC compressor to your new AC compressor. This should be a connector with one pin located on your driver side. You will need to extend it to your new compressor. It is also recommended that you take the connector from your stock AC compressor so that everything mates up nicely.

Once the AC lines are installed and the wiring is complete, you must take the car to a certified AC technician to have the AC system charged. Make sure to have the technician pressure check and test the system before you leave in case an “O” ring has been damaged during installation.
