Getting enought room to get it out is the problem. 4 thought bolts hold it on and the linesets are held on with one bolt for each line. don't forget to remove the freon first as you can hurt yourself. corse the belt needs to be removed. The easiest way to get enough room is to take out the raditor so you may as well clean it and do a good cooling system maintanice while your in there

When i turn on my ac the motor bogs down and loses power. the power steering gets real tight, and some indicator lights come on in the dash, but it i turn the ac off the engine runs normally

The compessor may be going out. I've seen them lock up and you can't even start the engine. and when they do lock up they kill the engine if it's running

there are pressures sensors on the a/c lines for low and high side pressure. if the high side pressure exceeds a certain high, or the low side doesn't have a minimum, then the pump and fan will shut off. if you took the vehicle to a mechanic and he only checked the low side pressure, then you are taking your rig to the wrong mechanic. anyone with proper knowledge of a/c systems would have the tools and know how to tell you exactly what was causing your issue withing about 20 minutes of diagnostics at the most. Find a new mechanic
