View Full Version : 1996 AC plumbing?

I have a 91 but my HVAC system is bits and pieces of custom parts. I currently have it drained for a heater core swap. I was looking at ways to simplify it a bit and came across this page in the parts catalog. full size (http://www.eric-a-hall.com/gallery/albums/cherokee-powertrain/1996_HVAC_Plumbing.png)


Is that an accurate diagram for 96? Earlier models all had service valves on the compressor that forced the lines to come out of the compressor sideways. I already checked the interchange, and the compressor, expansion valve and condenser are all the same part numbers, so fittings should be the same.

And are the high and low service ports on the compressor lines (looks like caps)?

My 96 compressor, hoses and fittings look just like the picture.

That is how my '96 is setup. Caps on the two lines behind the compressor.

Do you need any actual pics?

94 all us vehicles went to r134a so that changes a few things.
