Question about Pontiac Montana
There may be a seal available for this compressor,but,what you will be gambling on,is if the axle shaft is worn too bad for the new seal to seal off.If it is leaking from around the clutch on the compressor,then this is most likely where it is leaking from.Now,replacing the ac compressor,orifice tube,and accumilator/dryer,would be the way to go to repair the ac system if the seal can not be sealed off.The seal is about 30 dollars,and the labor will be around 100 dollars plus chemicals.NAPA auto parts now offers a complete ac kit that includes everything you need except labor,and freon.Check into this,they offer it in a remanufactured kit,or new,either will be fine,but to replace the ac compressor,you will need to replace dryer and orifice tube for the store to warrantee the parts,this way,the store has no problem,defecting the parts out for you,this is the reason for the kit program they have,it includes all these parts and the oil for that vehicle,and the flush,to flush the system out.If this was helpful,please rate,and I would hope you go with the ac replacement,cause the gamble really is not worth it,thank you.
