Found a volcano of bubbles coming from the 2 halves of the ac compressor (used nitrogen)...Can this be fixed (new seals, etc) or should I just look for another compressor? and is there any tricks to swapping this compressor out? It was a biotchh when I put the motor in and the motor wasnt even down on the mounts all the way...

Thanks

Hey, in my recent ac troubles I came across this.

But unfortunately I don't know compressors well enough to answer your other question.

Time for a new one. AFAIK, not one of the compressor parts is available anywhere over the counter except for the clutch.
