What's changed for 2002?
There are no changes for the '02 A/C kits. The A/C
kits and instructions are carryover from '01.
TOOLS AND SUPPLIES REQUIRED
Open-end wrench set
90-Degree hook-shaped tool
Socket wrench set
1/2" Drive breaker bar
Belt Tension Gauge: T/N 07JGG-001010A
Refrigerant oil (R12 mineral oil or R134a PAG oil)
Fender covers, floor mats, and seat covers
HFC-134a refrigerant recovery/recycling/charging
Eye protection (face shield, safety goggles, etc.)
Electronic leak detector
Use only HFC -134a in this system; do not
use CFC 12 (Freon); do not install parts
designed for use in a CFC system.
Use a charging station. A/C charging
stations and refrigerant recovery/recycling/
charging stations minimize the release of
CFC s and HFC s to the atmosphere. Use them
for all A/C charging and service work
according to their manufacturers' instructions.
Do not overcharge. This system requires only
the amount of HFC -134a refrigerant shown
below. If you overcharge the system, the engine
and the A/C would malfunction.
600 to 650 grams
.60 to .65 kilograms
1.3 to 1.4 pounds
21.2 to 22.9 ounces

Before You Begin:
Customer Information: The information in
these instructions is intended for use only by
skilled technicians who have the proper tools,
equipment, and training to correctly and safely
add equipment to your car. These procedures
should not be attempted by "do-it-yourselfers."
Write down the customer's radio station
presets; the radio memory will be erased
when you disconnect the battery.
Make sure you install the right part. Use the
illustrations on pages 2 and 3 as a guide to
check the parts before you install them.
Don't remove plugs and caps from fittings
until the parts are ready to connect. This will
keep out moisture and dirt which could cause
wear and damage.
Before you connect any line or hose, check
and lube its O-ring. Make sure the O-ring is
there (inside the fitting), put a few drops of
refrigerant oil on it and on the threads, then
connect the fitting.
You may use either type of refrigerant oil to
lubricate O-rings and fittings.
If you add or replace refrigerant oil in the
system, use only this PAG oil: ND-8,
Route and secure the lines and hoses
properly; maintain clearance between them
and surrounding parts.
Use two wrenches to tighten or loosen
fittings; hold one fitting in place while you
tighten the other one against it.
Before you connect each connector, check
its terminals. Make sure they aren't bent or
out of place.
NOTICE Don't overtighten; you could
damage the fittings. Before you tighten a
fitting, check the torque listed for it. If leaks are
caused by faulty O-rings, overtightening the
fitting won't help.
