Default Re: 2007 Saturn Vue Greenline AC

thanks for the reminder ... i specifically looked for the hybrid compressor at rockauto.com. but, given fdryer's strong suggestion that the accumulator/drier also be replaced (which i had absolutely no idea) ... i'm leaning toward not repairing the AC as just the parts (from rockauto.com) are going to run almost $400.

so, that begs one last (hopefully) question from you AC-knowledgeable individuals: my mechanic has suggested taking the AC out and putting in a bypass pulley ... is that necessary? prudent? i'm not sure if he is suggesting taking all the AC hardware out or just the compressor but i would think that would be not a good idea if the next owner wanted to fix the issue.

thanks in advance for your opinions ...

REWARD EXCELLENCE!
