A/C compressor DIY help
I need to find out whether or not it is possible for me to work on replacing the a/c compressor on my 159 1.9jtdm myself. The a/c hasn't worked for a while and I had the tinny whining noise from the compressor last year which has gone now, so guessing the bearings have gone.
If anyone needs brought up to speed, I rebuilt my engine earlier in the year due to swirl flap failure in so I'm more than happy and capable of taking bits off the engine.
Where I am hesitant, is the gas in the system there is any. Once removed is a compressor servicable or do they just need replaced? Secondhand, reconditioned or new replacement? Is there any specialist tools for working on A/C?
