Ford Mustang AC condensers are placed behind the front bumper so that moving air will cool the freon. After liquification in your car's expansion valve, your A/C transmits the cold air into the interior of your Mustang.
High Quality, Direct Replacement Mustang AC Condenser
The A/C condenser in your Mustang sits behind the front bumper in front of the radiator so that the coolest possible air can pass through it, cooling the freon in your air conditioning system. Unfortunately, this puts it in a very vulnerable position. If you were in a front end collision while driving your Mustang, more than likely you will need to replace your A/C condenser. Fortunately, LRS has the direct replacement condenser you need for your New Edge Mustang.
How Does an A/C Condenser Work?
First you take freon gas and place it in a sealed system. The freon is then pressurized using a compressor. As it's pressurized, it gets hot by absorbing the heat around it. This hot gas is then circulated through the A/C condenser, which is simply a series of tubes that dissipate the heat by allowing cool air to flow around them. The freon gas can lose lots of heat (get cold) when you reduce the pressure, then as it cools it becomes a liquid.
I purchased this condenser as an economical replacement for my leaking original one. I replaced all the A/C components with OEM except for the evaporator, which is working fine, and the condenser from latemodelresto. I was worried about the function as the aftermarket looked a lot different. The fit was good, I had to clearance the passenger side of the core support slightly because the block where the lines attach was rubbing. The condenser seems to function as well as the original. There seems to be some slight loss of cooling at idle, but I think that is due to the Mustangs single fan set-up and my Steeda under drive pulleys. So far I am happy with the purchase. I rely a lot on latemodelresto to keep my Mustang going.
