Sure you can replace it, but that wont help.First why are you replacing it? leak? siezed? you will need to replace the accumulator, check and replace the orifice tube, it it has metal on the tube, you will need to flush or replace the condensor. Then the correct amount and grade of refrigerent oil is added, then the system put into a deep vacuum for at least 30 minutes, then charged the correct amount of r134. Getting raped and correctly repaired are 2 different things, if you cant do it right, dont bother, your're just throwing money away.
