AC compressor removal was straight forward for me once I figured out where all the fastening bolts were.  I watched video after video and they glossed right over where the bottom bolts were.  I figured this was just one of those things that was so obvious, I should have known it going in.  But I didn’t know it, so I took care to make it obvious to anyone in my video.

The trick with the AC compressor (as with the power steering pump) is to keep the system closed, unbolt it from the block and just set it aside.  Not too much more to it than that.

So, check out the video, and be sure to check out my other videos, subscribe to my YouTube channel, and like and comment.   Thanks!
