Advice for replacing AC compressor on an 02 Taurus?


Recommended Posts

Hey everybody.  I'm replacing the compressor and orifice tube on me Mum's '02 Taurus at 110k miles, so they're all original parts.  I've never done this job before so I need advice going in.  I believe this car has an orifice tube vs. filter as when I'm on rockauto and drilled down to 2002 Ford Taurus OHV, in the Heat and Air Conditioning sub-menu it only gives an option for orifice tube and not filter, so I guess an orifice tube is what I got.


What little doo dads do I need besides the compressor and orifice tube going into this?...o-ring seals or some kind of general AC component seals replacement kit?  Or things other than the seals I'm imagining running into?


Also, any just general advice going about this?  Much obliged :)
