Son's SLS is blowing warm. Ran a full set of guages on the system, low. Added Freon, seated for leaks, found that the compressor was barely compressing. Clutch is kicking in, but only 1 in 10 engagements do I get a normal lo/hi reading. Other times, lo is fine but high barely moves - compressor out.

Read the manual, looks like it's coming out thru the wheel well. Anyone have any lessons learned that had done this before. Looks like it'll take 2-3 hours to get it out.

(Yes, in have flush, vacuum pump etc)

Haven't had the compressor off, but I do remember it being in the way when I tried reaching the alternator connections from underneath, so I would take off the splash shield and investigate the access possibilities there too

It comes out through RF wheel well. Depends on the model and year you might have to remove the top mounting stud to gain extra space to turn it around.

Yes, manual says splash shield as well.

Looking at a new Four Seasons vs new AC Delco. Any opinions?
