2007 Ford Five Hundred Question: AC Compressor cost
if the compressor is bad, you can bet the dryer is contaminated. the orfice line, flush and charging. dealer would be my last choice due to pricing. check the independent repair shops for a bid with your dealer pricing. Roy - mastertech6371
It depends on why the compressor needed replacement. If the compressor had an internal failure, causing debris to travel through the system, then Roy is correct, the drier and orifice tube would need replacement. But if the clutch was to fail, you could get by with just replacing the compressor. You can see what the repair should cost here: http://repairpal.com/estimator?car_type_id=4932 - Bret Bodas
