Installing AC Compressor – Rebuild Video 7

The AC compressor is heavy and awkward so you might be inclined to do the easiest bolts first which are the 3 on top.  That’s how I started.  But then I didn’t have enough wiggle room to get the 2 lower bolts in.

I started over with the hardest one, which was the front bottom one.  These bolts are LONG and they are hard to get in there because of a big piece of steering/suspension (I’m still not sure) equipment.  The only way I could get the front one bolted up was by hanging a ratcheting wrench on the bolt, inserting it, and then torquing it down.  Then I could get the wrench out.  If you find another way, please feel free to comment as I am sure it will be helpful.
