Hello, thanks for writing in about your Jeep Compass. You have to lower the compressor and pull it towards the outside as far as possible. Then move A/C line to other side of the alternator battery stud. It is a little hard but it will come out eventually. If you end up needing some help with this, consider YourMechanic, as a certified technician can ensure a proper replacement of your alternator and help address any other issues that may arise. Good luck.
