Car only would blow hot air from top, took car to get diagnostics. Total charged was $155.00 for them to do electrical diagnostics and they replaced 4 vacuum hoses. Then I had hot air coming out the 2 vents on passenger side, and cooler air blowing out 2 vents from the drivers side. They told me that the part is $160.00 and labor $650.00 plus tax $850.00. The tech also said that the compressor was working but did not have alot ot pressure. Can I buy this part online and do it myself. I have not been able to find it, and dealership says it has been discontinued. Tried getting quotes at other shops and they said I would have to find the part then labor would run $600.00.

    You never did say exactly what part needs to be replaced on your 1995 Cadillac DeVille - I would guess the passenger side temp actuator has failed. If you cannot find the part there is no way you can put it in yourself. You research shows that the labor cost from the dealer is not out of line. It looks to me that if you want your A/C repaired it's going to cost you about $850.00.
