I'm here at my girlfriend's house and it seems that the A/C compressor on her '99 Elantra has seized.
She is able to get a junkyard replacement for $75, which seems reasonable. I have a reasonable amount of tools with me, and she knows how to charge the system with the store-bought cans of 134a, so that's not a problem.
What I seek is as much advice about this project as I can get before undertaking. I'll have one full day to do this, but that's it -- so I want to eliminate as much guesswork as I can.
Occasionally I've found service manuals online for other cars, but I haven't found one yet for this car. Anyone have any leads?
Thank you all very much for your help.
