Drain out the oil from the old one in a measuring cup and then put the same amount of fresh oil to the replacement. Why are needing to replace just the dryer? If the bag inside the dryer came apart you will have all of that particulate matter all through your system so it I'll need to be flushed throughly before it will operate without messing up the compressor, orface tube or expansion valve.
