Hello all. I would like to fix my AC  on 89 quest. Everything is oem on the car.My question is about that one condenser/cooler  under by the fog light driver side it is in very bad condition. Is it really needed? Only 88-89 cars have them.  Is there some kind of replacement available? Thank you all!

Transmission cooler is on pass side it does almost look identical. One on drivers side is connected to AC condenser for extra cooling l guess. And yes automatic cars have them. Has anyone deleted it or replaced it w aftermarket?

You can just run the manual transmission style lines and delete it.  I couldn't tell a difference in the ac cooling on the one I did.

Good ldea l have some lines from manual car sitting around. Thank you gentlemen. Gonna throw in two primary coolant temp sensors on the radiator also so that all fans kick in at the same time. I think that  will be beneficial to.

Really don't have to do that.Just run a loop between primary and secondary wiring that way all three fans come on.
