This should be done by a qualified a/c person. The system has to be evacuated and recharged. If not done properly you will have a/c problems in future.
A/C CONDENSER
Removal

1. Recover refrigerant from A/C system with R 134a refrigerant recovery machine. See RECOVERY,  EVACUATION & SERVICING PROCEDURES article in GENERAL SERVICING.
2. Remove front fascia. Remove upper radiator support cross member.
3. Remove transmission cooler lines.

NOTE: Cap lines while system is open to prevent moisture from entering system.

4. Remove A/C lines. See Fig. 20 . Remove two condenser mounting bolts. Lift condenser up out of the vehicle.
