The air conditioning compressor may develop an abnormal noise and require replacement. We recommend that whenever an AC compressor is being replaced for a noise condition, a filter kit should be installed to prevent any metal particles in the system from damaging the new compressor.

The compressor went bad so the mechanic disconnected it. Lucky us we live in Alaska. :)
