Here's our estimator link. I hope it's of some help. My guess is at about 4 hours labor at the local rate for a new compressor. https://repairpal.com/estimator?car_type_id=1872 If you want to find a specialist, here's our directory link for you: https://repairpal.com/directory?address=80237&car_brand_names=Lexus I don't know the local labor rates in your area so you may have to phone around and check. I don't imagine any competent, experienced technician would guarantee his work if you supply a used compressor so don't be surprised if they refuse the job.

buying a used a/c compressor is like buying a used condom. you don't know where it's been and you don't know if it will work.
