Q: Question on fixing Ford Focus AC

asked by on

I went to a mechanic and he told me I need to change the compressor on my focus which I knew.. then he ended up telling me I needed to buy the whole kit..which he wanted to charge me 500 for everything. I just really wanted to know how crucial it is to change the whole kit? And if I could possibly get by with just changing the compressor.

My car has 135583 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.
