ac hose diagram

I was wondering if anybody on here has a diagram of how the ac hoses are routed on a 2002 focus svt? would they be the same as how they are routed on a focus SE with the zetec?

Thank you both. I kind of thought so, but I wasnt completely sure.
I am in the process of switching out my tranny when I realized my car, which I bought used, doesnt have any ac hoses or any of the parts other than the condenser and pump. The person that disconnected it didnt even bother to plug the holes in the pump.
Now that I have just dumped nearly a grand into this tranny swap as well as clutch, flywheel, throwout bearing, timing belt, water pump, starter etc etc, I am now in need of an ac system.
My wife and daughter and me are going to arizona and back up to washington through california in august/september. Going to be around the triple digits and ac would be nice.

Wow... unlucky you. You're going to need to replace the compressor. You can try it, but it will probably not work if the hoses have been off for that long. Also, disconnect the hose from the connection at the firewall and replace the orifice tube- it's a $4 part that should be replaced every time the system is discharged because it acts like a filter protecting the evaporator. The accumulator should be changed as well. As far as the condenser goes, I'd fill it with mineral spirits, let it soak a while, then blow it out with compressed air. Be very careful when doing this, wear safety goggles so you don't splash it in your eyes. That should clean out any dried up crud that would clog up the orifice tube.

Check out they have great prices and below is a 5% discount code that you enter in the box "How did you hear about us" on the Checkout Page.


Their orifice tube should be about $1 instead of 4, and the compressor is probably $100 off what you'd pay in a store. That discount code is only good until May, so after that you'll have to check back in our Vendor Deals, Group Buys, and Special Discounts Forum in the Rock Auto thread to find the latest discount code.

If you need any help with the parts or cleaning, let us know. I've heard that you can't rent a vacuum pump from parts stores any more. If you know someone who works for an HVAC contractor, it's the same pump, but you still need gauges to vacuum it out. The gauges are the same as well, but the hoses are different. That might help save you some money if they are willing to help you out.
Be eclectic.
