2001 Legacy wagon 2.5L 230K 5spd
I've just acquired a high mileage 2001 2.5 liter Outback. I am thinking of getting rid of the AC system to open space under the hood and reduce complexity. I live at a high latitude and, global warming not withstanding, AC is a bit of an oxymoron here. What is involved in this? I am assuming that I will need to get the Freon refrigerant collected from the system at an auto shop before I do this. Anything else?
