AC compressor replacement

Has anyone replaced their AC compressor and dryer and can share or point me to a DIY guide? I can't find any info specific to an S65 motor.

Thanks!

I'd recommend you check out newtis.info

It's about 4-6 hour job, involves removing radiator fan and removing some coolant hoses and draining the coolant. You'll also need your Freon pulled and replaced IIRC. Was kinda PITA even with a lift.

Thank you, this is very helpful.

It look like a very involved process but it sure beats the $2700 quote I got from the dealership. Fortunately I have a lift, should make it a little easier on my back. Thanks again.
