How to Replace AC Condenser on Ford Edge and Lincoln MKX?

The procedure is similar for both ford and Lincoln car models:-----

The Ac condenser Replacing details are as follows:----

The A/C condenser for this vehicle is produced from the factory with a receiver/drier desiccant bag installed in the integrated receiver/drier. This receiver/drier desiccant bag may become contaminated with moisture if the A/C condenser is not installed for an extended period of time. Since it cannot be determined how much time has elapsed between production and installation of the unit as a service part, the receiver/drier desiccant bag must be removed and replaced with the separate receiver/drier desiccant bag, which is supplied together with the A/C condenser service part kit.

The O-ring seals used on this vehicle are not interchangeable with all similarly sized O-ring seals used on other Ford products. Use only the O-ring seals specified for this vehicle in the Ford master parts catalog.

  1. Recover refrigerant.
  2. Position vehicle on a hoist.

  7. Release the 2 radiator bracket clips from the radiator support and position the radiator rearward.
  8. Release the 2 condenser lines from the clips at the radiator.
  9. Remove the condenser outlet and inlet fitting bolts and disconnect the fittings. Discard the o-ring seals. To install, tighten to 53 inch lbs. (6 lbs.).
