03 Taurus Replacing AC Compressor

I am replacing the AC Compressor on my 03 Taurus. (Compressor Froze). Can I just put the new compressor on then take it to the shop for the AC work or do I need to have it towed... or is there a way to make it drivable for the "back yard mechanic"? ie. Is the vehicle drivable if I simply put the compressor on and put it back together? I dont want to damage the compressor obviously. Any expert words of wisdom on any other issue I may not have considered would be appreciated as well. As it stands right now, the old compressor is off and I'm ready to install the new one. Thanks

Re: 03 Taurus Replacing AC Compressor

You can go ahead and install it, wont hurt a thing. The clutch on the compressor will not engage without pressure in the system, only the pulley will be turning, not the compressor.
