Question about Chrysler LHS
Depending on make and model , Yes and no!
Most cars , the AC Compressor is mounted in a similar way to a power steering pump or alternator, loosen the belt or belts and unbolt from the motor. Access is the main difference between vehicles, the other is how the electric clutch is connected ( usually a spade terminal) and the plumbing. Most AC compressors have two pipes ( under pressure ) connected to the pump by flanges held in by 6mm bolts and sealed by "O" rings. To remove , undo the bolts and gently ( the pipes are aluminum and don't like being bent) wiggle the pipes out of the pump. Make sure you keep everything clean, you don't want dirt in the pipes.
It pays to get the refrigerant drained before you start as it is a greenhouse gas.
Once you have replaced the pump you will need to get the system re-gassed.
Not a hard job but you will need to get a professional involved to do the regassing and the faulty pump may have been caused by a problem elseware in the system in the first place.
Hope this helps Marshall
