Re: installing a/c in my samurai

I was just recently thinking the exact same thing. The tintop I have here had A/C in it, but no more. In fact, there isn't anything left in it from the A/C. I looked through the FSM too and nothing.

Anyone help us out???

Cheers,
Steve

Samurai AC manual Part#

I'm in the same boat.

At one time Suzuki had an AC installation manual, Part # 99963-01501-052 A/C - Installation Manual for the Samurai.

I've tried & tried (unsuccessfully) to get Jim Clark Suzuki, a new dealer in Junction City, KS, to order this manual. As best as they can figure out, it is no longer available although Suzuki Parts System does not formally state so.

At some point after 1991, Suzuki only included the installation instructions in the AC kit. (I kick my rear often for passing on a Swift AC kit for $100 when my local dealer dropped Suzuki line.

I had AC in my 88.5 JA champagne tintop (another reason to kick my rear often, sold it in 92) Original price was $5995 (THANX Consumer Reports) plus $1K for AC.

I have 2 AC systems to install, one a R134A. Also have a cold AC in a 91 Swift GTi. Just need to get off my *** & install before summer. I plan to film the install, & perhaps post).

Please advise if anyone can source that AC Installation Manual.

Re: installing a/c in my samurai

I've got the Suzuki manual titled: Air Conditioning Basic Manual. (P.N. 99520-02130-01E) It is what it says - very basic! Not Samurai specific. Gives some info on charging, compressor rebuilds,idle up device, pressure switch etc. I have A/C in my 88 & 87 but compressor has been pulled from the 87. Can take some photo's if you let me know what you guys need pics of and email 'um to ya. I may be able to get some pages scanned & email them but I do not have a scanner so it would be a PITA. But yeah what are friends for huh?

Re: installing a/c in my samurai

The thing I don't get regarding AC is what exactly is under the dash to provide that cooling???? I know that the AC lines run in and out of the cab but other than that, I have no idea where they go?

If someone can get a pic of the underside of the dash where the hoses come in and where they go, that would be appreciated [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] Anything really, would help.

Cheers!
