There's not really a diagram for the actual removal and installation. A good repair manual might list steps like these: First, your system needs to be purged of the freon. Next, unplug the AC clutch/pulley assembly at the front of the compressor. Remove the belt, then the AC lines on the compressor (usually in the back), then unbolt the AC from any mounting bracket(s) and remove. To avoid having to press on and off the clutch/pulley assembly you might want to make sure you're buying a complete compressor assembly. Read and follow those directions concerning oil for the compressor. After installing the new AC, reconnect the lines with new "O" rings. Most if not all compressor manufacturers will not honor any warranty unless you change out your orifice tube (also called an expansion valve) and accumulator (aka the dryer) at the same time. Recharge the system with the appropriate amount and type of freon, most likely R-134a.
