    It’s not as bad as everyone makes out. Remove the plastic pipe that feeds the passenger side turbo.

    And remove the fan, shroud and radiator to make undoing and redoing the hose connectors easier.

    Okay thanks for the help guys, it’s just I didn’t get the car not long ago and realised how bad the condition is there’s no belt.

    Does the compressor come on when you turn the A/C on?
    Does it have refrigerant in the system when checked at the low pressure side?

    OK, it compressor is stuffed, your supposed to capture the refrigerant.
    Are you going to recharge the system yourself?
    Manifold gauges are cheap these days, plus R134a isn't the only refrigerant available.
    Are you running R134a now?
