So you want to replace the compressor?
You need to have all the freon evacuated from the system then remove the AC lines from the compressor. There is a small adjustor for the compressor belt you will loosen the bolt on this and the belt will get loose so you can remove the belt. You will want to use a flex head ratcheting wrench if you have one to get to the bolts There are two bolts that hold the compressor on these will be removed then you will
You can see the belt tensioner in the picture between the compressor
Do I have to remove the Radiator or anything to get to the remove the belt or the compressor bolts?
No not that I am aware of I have done this and the steps say no
Is the compressor removed from the top or the bottom of the engine well?
They dont have a guide so I am working from my personal knowledge they have the steps to rebuild it but not removal
I guess it would be best to put the car on a hoist! I am an experienced aircraft mechanic and how long do you think it should it take me to remove and replace the compressor?
HERE ARE THE STEPS FROM THE BOOK CLICK HERE
This is pretty simple hoist makes anything easier but jack and stands will work. Remove the freon the belt and the two bolts take it out at an angle and reverse to install.Let me know if you need anything else. If you found this information helpful. Please kindly press ACCEPT.
