: 2007 Cadillac STS AC compressor removal?

Hey guys, gals, I used to be a service tech for Chrysler but got out of the repair
business in 2004. My wife's AC compressor locked up and I got a reman unit but it lllooks like a real SOB to change out! Any tricks? Thanks ahead of time!:thumbsup:

171 people viewed this and no ones replaced their own AC compressor and can't tell me the easiest way to get it out? Guess this isn't a technical forum!

It's an owners and enthusiasts forum. My guess about the lack of responses is that an A/C compressor failure on an STS is a rare event.

I would have helped but as I have the 4.6L V8 and not the V6 the info from alldata that I have doesn't apply to your car.

You might check out the CTS forum. They all have the 3.6 and may have had to do A/C compressor replacements.

Koz is right. A/C issues are very rare on the STS. Are you sure that's your problem?

If it's your passenger side not as cool as the driver's, you may just be a bit low on freon. For some reason, that shows up first.
