It is about 3 hours labor as it cannot be replaced with the compressor on the vehicle. You will have to evacuate the system of refrigerent, remove the compressor which will require removing the condensor fan assembly in order to have room to lift out the compressor, and then it REQUIRES a special clutch holding tool to remove the clutch. The tool is available from either a Honda dealer(special order) or from a tool truck such as Snapon or Matco. It runs about $100 for the tool.
