AC high pressure switch

AC high pressure switch

Postby bmorgoch [OP] » August 16th 2014, 12:34am

I am replacing the ac compressor in my 2004 safari (with rear ac).

I have everything undone except the high pressure switch connector. It is oriented in a way that I can't see what the "magic" trick is.

Does anyone know how to disconnect the high pressure switch connector on the back of the compressor?

I have purchased a new switch for the replacement compressor already.

Part you need to keep is the part on the wire. It has a lock on it. Find the flat part and squeeze it real good. That unlocks it.

The connector on the end of the wire is black in colour. I found the latch that needs to be squeezed, but there is a blue locking piece between the main body of the connector and the handle that needs to be squeezed. I can't seem to get the blue lock out so that I can squeeze the handle to release the connector from the switch.

Anyone?

I think you have to use a little screwdriver to convine the blue locking tab to get free, but keep careful hold of the tab because I'm told it has a tendency to fly away once it releases otherwise.
