Air Conditioning Compressor Replacement Removal Procedure
Notice: Use the correct fastener in the correct location. Replacement fasteners must be the correct part number for that application. Fasteners requiring replacement or fasteners requiring the use of thread locking compound or sealant are identified in the service procedure. Do not use paints, lubricants, or corrosion inhibitors on fasteners or fastener joint surfaces unless specified. These coatings affect fastener torque and joint clamping force and may damage the fastener. Use the correct tightening sequence and specifications when installing fasteners in order to avoid damage to parts and systems.

Reply to Scott K's Post: How do I recover refrigerant?
You will need a recovery machine, a very expensive piece of equipment.
You might be able to take it to a local shop and pay a small fee for them to remove it (they get to keep the dirty refrigerant their machine will recycle it) Then when you get the parts on they can also pull a vacuum on the system and recharge it.
Don't install the new compressor without pulling a vacuum afterwards air and moisture will be present in the system causing poor cooling and acids to develop that will attack the a/c system.
