Need to replace the ac compressor, dryer and expansion valve

Customer Question

Need to replace the ac compressor, dryer and expansion valve on a 201 CRV. Do I need to remove the front facia/fender/radiator?? Thank You..
JA: How many miles are on the car? Has any work ever been done on the radiator?
Customer: about 100,000. No work has been done to the radiator.
JA: Tell me a bit more about what's going on so he can help you best.
Customer: AC compressor works (and car blows cold air) for about the first three miles of driving, then the cold air quits and blows hot. Had it diagnosed by an AC mechanic and he said that the AC clutch was slipping.. I could replace the clutch, but though I would replace the whole compressor - and the drier and expansion valve.. Your thoughts??
JA: Are you hoping to fix this yourself?
Customer: Yes
JA: Great! What have you tried so far?
Customer: Nothing, just had the car diagnosed this AM.
JA: Is there anything else important you think the Honda Mechanic should know about your Honda?
Customer: No
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Honda Mechanic about your situation and then connect you two.
