shop did a check on why my A/C is not blowing.... I couldn't figure out why it was not blowing cold at all... it is like a hair dryer!!

took it to a local garage to do an ac checkup (39.99 later) they said the Compressor is out! 700 labor and 700 parts and freon.... about 1400.00!!!!! no way :nono:

well..... the knob or actuator to switch it from hot to cold is 168.00 bucks from the dealer!!

what did you guys pay to repair it...... or how difficult is it to fix??? what tools are needed??

I would have a shop discharge the freon, do the pump yourself, then have a shop recharge it. Shouldnt cost more then $100 for the shop to do it, and $250 for a new pump (new). IIRCC, its only a few bolts.

can someone write up a how to???? what tools are needed to swap one out?? are there any sealed tubes that need to be pressed??? I am not familiar with the lines on this car.

thanks for your input!!! very appreciated. :cool:
