C5 A/C COMPRESSOR HOSE REPLACEMENT
42
Here’s the replacement A/C compressor hose provided by Corvette Central. GM had stopped producing them for a while but, luckily, now after-market replacements are available.
Removal of the battery-box upper trim and surround makes accessing the two rear manifold mounting bolts a bit easier.
Here you can see the recharging fitting on the unit used to introduce R134A into the system. The mounting bolt is back by the firewall and not clearly visible here.
The upper bolt is removed topside, but the other mounting bolt has to be reached from underneath the car.
