Expert:  kalamykid replied 3 months ago.

It is possible that the compressor does not need to be replaced. If the bearing on the front of the compressor is all that is locked up, then you can get a clutch bearing and shoe kit and just replace the badparts with out pullng the compressor at all.

can't get to fitting on top of the compressor... whats the steps
Expert:  kalamykid replied 3 months ago.

The first thing you will have to do is reclaim the freon in the system. then unplug the clutch plug on the front of the compressor. There are 4 bolts that hold the compressor to the side of the engine. There is also a bolt that hold the lines to the top of the compressor. Remove these bolts and the compressor will come out the bottom of the van. The drier is on the fire wall on thew passenger side, and you will need to pull the washer fill tube as well as the cruze control unit to get access to the drier.

what does ford say that needs to be done?
Expert:  kalamykid replied 3 months ago.

You will have to unbolt the compressor from the engine to get access to the lines on the top of the compressor.

Expert:  kalamykid replied 3 months ago.

There is one bolt between the compressor and the block that will go in from the front of the engine, and three bolts that go in from the side of the compressor.

Customer: replied 3 months ago.
1 there is only 3 bolts ..# 2 with them out the lines on the compressor will not the compressor come down enough to get to the bolt that holds the lines on
Expert:  kalamykid replied 3 months ago.

I never said it would be easy to get to the manifold bolt, but you will have to pull the bolts out to get the compressor to move to give you access to the bolt for the lines.

Expert:  kalamykid replied 3 months ago.

I use a 1/4 in air ratchet to get to the ac manifold bolt.

Customer: replied 3 months ago.
buddy you can't get a screwdriver let alone 1/4 air ratchet
Expert:  kalamykid replied 3 months ago.

Once you get the compressor unbolted, it will drop down and you can rotate it just enough to get to the bolt.

Expert:  kalamykid replied 3 months ago.

Did you pull the fan shroud?

Customer: replied 3 months ago.
what did I ask you at the beginning .. need the steps to remove a/c compressor... your a waste of time buddy
Expert:  kalamykid replied 3 months ago.

Sorry you fell that way.
