94 lhs air conditioning problem.
Okay, heres what I got. A 94 LHS with a dying compressor. It has a complete charge and everything works, its just that the bearing in the compressor is dying. If i used the air for a few minutes, after it gets warmed up, the compressor starts making noises then it just locks up tighter than a drum.
So I have a bad compressor. I found a compressor here in town for 125 bux with a 6 month warranty on it but I am wondering about what else should I replace?
I was told the receiver dryer (50 dollars) and the expansion valve (28 dollars) need to be replaced, is that correct? If so how hard are they to replace?
What I want to do is to have the system evacuated from the a/c shop, and then I will do the work myself and then bring it back to the a/c shop for recharge and flush (is the flush necessary?).
Any other tips?
Thanks in advice.
