Can anyone tell me how to replace the ac condenser unit on my 01 Dodge Grand Caravan Sport. Dealer wants $1000. Freon has completely leaked out. They say the condenser has a leak. My husband checked price on part and can get it for $200. I am hoping he can replace the unit himself. Any advice greatly appreciated.
Regards,
georgia

My advice to your Husband is to get a good divorce lawyer if your going to put him up to that.

That's a 10 hour grueling job for a pro. Call the dealer parts department and ask what else needs to be replaced when doing this job, as I believe there are a couple of revisions on this. You'll want to change the dryer at the same tme. Best bet is to either pick up a manual or buy the r and r procedure from the chysler website.

This is not a fun job.
