I need to re-install the AC condesor in my 00RS, the guy I bought it from removed it for some reason and didn't put it back. I've got the part but I'm not quite sure how to do it. I know it goes in front of the radiator correct? Do I have to remove the radiator all together to put the condesor back in? Do I need to remove the front bumper too?
My old car didn't have AC and I swear I'm not going through another summer without it. Any tips or advice would be greatly appreciated.

I had to do this once; not on a Subaru but I would imagine it's pretty much the same. It goes in front of the radiator, and I'm pretty sure you will have to take of the front bumper to be able to do it right. I'm pretty sure the radiator can stay put. Hope this helps.
:D

Evan,

Were the ends capped while the part was off the car? You don't want any kind of condensation inside the system or it will ruin it. Once you get it on make sure you take it somewhere to have the system purged and refilled.

Even though it may not look wet inside it can be. Water very very bad! :D

How exactly do I remove the bumber? I've taken bumpers off of other cars but never the RS. I can't imagine it being that difficult, but there are always screws and clips in weird places. Is there anything to look out for?
Thanks
Evan

There is a link on the I-club under "mods"-just click on the link for the PIAA 80 XT installation or whatever they're called. That'll tell you the whole thing.

No problem. I see you are in Greensboro-That's where I call home but I'm stuck in OH for now. Have you been there for long?

Hey awesome. Yeah I've been here for about 4 years now. I might be moving away this summer but it all depends on school and money. I like living here though. What took you all the way to Ohio?

I love it down there! The reasons why I moved up here make for a rather long story, but mainly it was for school. I plan on moving back when I graduate, but that will be about 5 years! :curse: Damn engineering! I may be down over the summer, though; maybe we can hang out.

Apperently, never, if I value my life!

And i don't really hate Honda's, just some of the people who drive them, and you know the ones I'm talking about. There are several Honda products I wouldn't mind owning, actually; ITR, NSX, CRX, RSX TypeS. I wish there was half the aftermarket for our RS's that there is for the Civic.

Yeah, in a week or so! And I got that smilie from www.off-topic.net . I'm Subie Driver over there, as I am at any non-Subaru board (for obvious reasons!), including ClubSI:eek: ! I think I have 5 whole posts at SI, as a matter of fact!
