Take wheel off to get it off and out. Change out orifice tube and accumulator at a minimum.
Did the compressor take a dump?

A/C compressor replacement would be pretty much straightforward when you remove the RF wheel and the splash shields. Some aftermarket/remanufactured compressors might require removing of the top stud for removal/installation of the compressor.

It's this stud of similar length.


You can use torx sockets. Similar sized regular socket could work (and I have used it) since it's not really "torqued down", but get the correct torx socket if you feel any strong resistance from the stud.

"How do I remove the stud on the top?"

Double-nut, because it works. If'n you gots a spare nut.

I always wished I had 3 arms. Would come in handy, often.
