Question about 1998 Jeep Cherokee
When I bought my Cherokee it needed a new AC compressor. I got one and My father , me and a guy we met at the autozone (self made mechcanic) tried to redo the AC. The Compressor went in fine, but the one of the 4 bolts broke off from age and torque. I have a GRABIT extractor kit, but I dont know if that will remove the sheared off bolt.
Next up is the AC repair. I plan on getting a new gasket for the compressor as it did not come with one. The original AC fix failed and after 2 days was completely gone. A new gasket and the stop leak AC kit from Quadratech should be able to fix this problem and get me AC again.
My questions basically come down to how should I remove the busted bolt and should I fix the AC myself with the kit and gasket or get it to a mechanic?
I would like to note that the first AC kit we tried had no stop leak in it, and the original worn gasket was used. The AC worked for 2 days before stopping.
IT is recommended to take it to a mechanic. For two reasons. One is that you want to make sure that the freon is cycled properly but you also want to make sure that it is installed properly. Since you have the parts it should be cheaper since you do n ot have to pay for there parts

You can install the parts I am sure without professional help, but you will need to have the system pulled down with a vacuum pump to remove all air and moisture, also u will need to replace the accumulator/drier canister an the fixed orfice. always use new seals, never reuse old seals, if the AC has been contaminated flush it with AC flushing fluid, if u don't the new/rebuilt compressor will fail, also if the accumulator is not replaced the AC compressor warranty will be voided, so keep the receipt's
