compressor comes out top side. may have to get to bottom bolts underneath. don't have to lift engine. pull hose assembly, cooling fans. pull compressor toward rear of engine.
You will have to remove the serpentine belt. Remove either the alternator and power steering unit OR remove the front side of the exaulst system OR remove the radiator fans and radiator in order to have room to get the AC compressor out. You will save at least 500.00 labor costs.
