Could anyone give me advice on how difficult it is to replace an aircon compressor and to fit a new
one ?

I'm not a trained mechanic but have a reaonable grasp of mechanical things. The garage want 3 hours labour, which probably isn't unreasonable, but if I took the job on, is it a job that I can finish ?

Can the job be done by access from the top ? or do you have to have access from underneath ie ideally from a pit or under a lift ?

Any thoughts would be very welcome

hi ,

you would need to de-gas the air con system before you take off the old one , you can do this by undoing the bleed valve on on of the air con pipes , access is limited so you would need to ideally get this on a ramp . Afterwards it would need to be re-gassed. Its a pain to do but it is doable with the right tools on a weekend.
