      First step - have the A/C system discharged by an a/c technician - if the system is not yet empty. Be sure to use line wrenches for the a/c line fittings to prevent damage to the fittings.

      Second step - remove the radiator cooling fans assembly. Third, remove the radiator. Next, loosen and remove the a/c line connections from the a/c condenser. Remove the condenser.

      The installation is the reverse of the removal steps. Be sure to replace the receiver / dryer unit at the same time as the condenser. Have the a/c system vacuumed before the recharging / refilling step.

      The parts are readily available from these many on-line sources, www.partsgeek.com, www.rockauto.com, www.discountautoparts.com, www.autopartswarehouse.com, www.jcwhitney.com - to list only a few possibilities. In fact, they (RockAuto) list the a/c condenser from around $60.00 for your vehicle.

      Most condensers are bolted to the radiator. You need to take off fan shroud and remove all hoses and lines that go to radiator. Also disconnect ac lines that connect to condenser. Pull radiator/ condenser out together. Separate radiator and condenser by removing bolts. Usually you need to evacuate ac system with a machine capable of pulling it out but in your case you have a high pressure leak or hole in condenser. Freon should be gone already. Once you install a new condenser it needs to properly be filled with freon after all hoses and pipes are hooked up snug tight. A vacuum needs to be pulled to remove all air by a service machine. Then a ounce of pag oil should be added and however how much freon is required for system full charge.

    Loud knocking sound from inside center dash area. It lasts for about 3 minutes when the door is open and then goes away.

      I do know that some of the 2000-2004 ish jeeps have an issue like that. It's more of a creaking sound though. It changes with the blend door for air controls moving. If it's not a performance/funtional related issue it shouldn't be of too much concern. However, a mechanic with a stethoscope should be able to determine the origin of the noise.

      Based on what you described, there's two possible problems here:
      -window motor at the end of its life.
      -window regulator defective

      The teeth of the motor-to-regulator can shear off over time, but usually the problem is the motor is beginning to burn out. This is especially true if the window motor has very slow operation. If the motor sounds like it's operating just fine, then the regulator may be binding. Does the window to up straight? Or does it sometimes tilt when moving?

    There is a high pitched clicking noise whenever the fan is running in the cabin.
    It does not matter if it's on heat or ac, the noise is the same. It still puts out what feels like the same amount of air. The only difference in noise is the lower the setting that its on the louder it gets. It's almost not noticable when on max.

      Check the fan, see if squirrel cage is loose or anything? Also, with interior clicking noises check the interior fuse box, relay/circuit breakers. If they are clicking on and off, you should be able to feel it?

      It could be an actuator door under the dash, that isn't working correctly?

      The vehicles used in the 'How-To-Guides' section are generic and the information is provided as volunteer - that is, not specific for the repair needed or researched for every vehicle type and model.

      The photos are general steps of how to perform the service or repair. If greater detail is needed, by vehicle year, make and model - then reference these sources; www.autozone.com, the local library in your area, the local auto parts stores of the vehicle repair manuals.
