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 Fox body 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 was a little disappointed to see that it was made in China but it did fit perfectly and is working great! My stang had a recent 134a retrofit but a rock had taken out the condenser,after installing latemodel 's,and a quick evacuate and recharge it is blowing cold again!
Yes, I would recommend this item to a friend!

Found it cheaper somewhere else but did not want to risk buying from someone I was not comfortable with handling my order. I buy all my parts from your company. Never any problems or shipping issues. Thanks.
I've done the majority of my aftermarket mustang parts shopping at American muscle, recently finding out about this website I'd just like to say it is a great experience to shop here, the lay out is easy and simple to navigate, and you have thousands of parts that no other website has. The shipping is very fast and all te updates are great. I will be doin much more shopping with y'all, so thanks for being so badass haha
