Replacing AC Compressor in 1998 A6
The compressor on my 1998 Audi A6 just went kaput. The local german car shop says $1,400 to replace. We have maintained it perfectly. But it's only worth $3,000 today.
A new compressor is only $385 so I thought maybe I can replace and save $900-$1,000.
I was getting ready to order the compressor right up until I popped the hood.
Am I wrong in thinking we have to take off the entire front end /radiator of the his A6 to gain access to the A/C Compressor to replace? Or can we replace it from underneath?
Any suggestions/input and/or pictures would be greatly appreciated.
