okay to remove unused A/C hoses and condenser?


Asked by Feb 20, 2015 at 03:20 PM about the 1986 Honda Accord DX

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I'm swapping out my radiator and dealing with A/C hoses that have been unused for 20 years. They are in the way. Is there any reason not to remove all the A/C stuff? I know I need to leave my compressor in there because the belt needs the pulley. But other than that...

You can take them out. Even get an idler to replace compressor and get rid of that too.
