    Question A/C compressor removal?

    Hi there,
    anyone ever replaced the a/c compressor without having the entire engine out?

    Mine sounded like a worn out bag-pipe when we tried to refill the system, so it needs some attention i guess...

    Any suggestions?

    Rgs, Anders

    (btw, what's up with the "Busted cambelt" under my nick to the top left? Is it something I can change?)

    You can remove the comlete air intake, then the A/C pump is accesseble.... This is how I removed the pump from my Q4 which i am taking appart. This is also not an easy thing to do

    Greatings,

    OK, thanks...suppose all the hose clamp screws for the inlet are facing downwards...which they do of course...makes it a bit more interesting. I need to think about that. It would be nice to fix it as I already have removed all belts and waterpump to change my (not yet busted) cambelt.

    Removing the inlet would give me the opportunity to replace the injectors ...yesyesyes
