    Hello

    My v2 cracked the other day, so i removed and is off at the welders.
    I needed to fit my new clutch, poly bush the front end and fit my brembos.
    So i decided to remove the front end and do the clutch and fit the v2 with the engine out of the car.
    Got the front end (bumper and associated parts removed) now im stuck.
    I forgot all about the aircon pipe work to the front radiator.
    Any ideas where to disconnect the pipe work at, so the front comes away as one ?
    Anything i should be aware of and avoid?
    Any info much appreciated

    Regards

    To do it right you really need the gas capturing, if it is empty just disconnect the pipe work, watch your eyes when undoing as it is not nice stuff..

    When I remove the front end, I undo the aircon lines that go into the condenser. There is an inlet on one side and outlet on the other.
