I really need some assistance.
I have a 2005 Mercury Montego (Build Date 11/2004).
Anyway, the A/C compressor is going out on me (no cold air at low speed driving, high speed driving it cools down a bit though...fan blows hard, and vents all work fine - no strange noises - typical A/C Compressor replacement needed)
Anyway, I bought the A/C Compressor and the Evaporator (drier). I brought the parts in to my local mechanic that I usually deal with, and was originally quoted that the job would take 2-3 hours total.
He just called me a few minutes ago and said that the job is probably going to take much longer than expected and would require dropping the sub-frame off the car in order to access the a/c compressor. He can't do this job he says, and advised me to seek another mechanic.
My question to you guys is....does the 2005 montego require the Sub-Frame to be dropped in order to access the A/C Compressor? If not, how would I go about doing it properly? Is there a trick or shortcut method to getting this done?
I really appreciate the help guys, thank you so much.
