It'* as easy as changing the radiator....Problem is evacuating the system before doing it.

Never done it myself.....But that'* about all it looks to be. I think that the Tranny cooler is attached to it.

You still need to pull a vacuum on the system after it'* all assembled. The moisture that leaked into the system is what will cause damage to the compressor. Given the level of fix that you're doing, the system will be wide open for a fair amount of time. After it'* reassembled, don't hesitate to pull a vacuum on that system for a good 4 hours.

thanks for the heads up, im not really an idiot usally, but when you say vaccum the system you mean thats what they are going before they refill the system right? Its the machine with the tank on it, do you suggest any pre removal process of the condenser? i have a gm service manual for my car so it shows me what to do other than it says i need some tool of some type, ive looked it over and all it is a brass fitting that threads onto the condenser. Thanks for your time
