ac compressor - how hard to replace?
My car has 108000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.
The first step in replacing the A/C compressor is to remove anything that blocks access to the serpentine belt. Once this has been done, the next step is to remove tension from the serpentine belt and slide it off of the compressor pulley. Once this has been done, the A/C system will need to be evacuated of all refridgerent in order to comply with federal regulations. Next, you will want to disconnect the A/C lines from the compressor. Finally, loosen and remove any mounting hardware that holds the compressor to the engine. Installation is reverse of removal.
