yeah yet a mechanic do it. you cant just change out the compressor and be good to go, you have to evacuate the system with a vacuum pump and all kinds of . the condenser and evaporator might need replacing aswell. i wanted to do the same thing to my civic and then found all this out. way more trouble than i thought it would be :(

go to a shop and get them to evac the compressor, then replace the compressor,condesor,evaporator and the orifice tube, then after putting all the new parts in yourself, take it to a shop and let them boil the lines and get them to charge the system and check for leaks...that should cut the bill in half EASY

too easy bro... no orifice tube on honda, just expansion valve... when u open the system, you should replace the reciever/drier too... moisture from the air wrecks ac... come by modern sounds auto and ask for chris ill take care of ya shop 713 242 8057 ill give ya a mh hookup

wanna try yourself? ok, drop the belt, 2 10mm nuts/bolts hold the high and low pressure lines to the compressor... then 4 12mm bolts hold the comp to the block... compressor will come down and out thru the bottom... inspect old comp for junk like shavings and ... might have to flush system. get new comp ready, add a lil pag oil to the low side and push the comp clutch in and turn pully by hand a few times... bolt the sonofabish up, put new o rings
on the hi/lo lines, bolt em up, and vacuum the system for at least 20 minutes. replace drier after installing new comp before vacuuming... manifold gauges are a must... i usually watch my gauges during and after the vacuum... if pressure goes from negative to zero, you got a leak. no leaks? cool, close the high side of the manifold gauges, and feed r134 thru the low(blue) side... a lil will go in, then start the car and turn on the ac... might take a while for enough frean to go in and trip the honda pressure switch to turn on the comp clutch... aim for 30-45 psi on the low side and about middle on the hi side honda civic uses just about 2 cans, or info on the sticker on the underside of the hood... i like to play with pressure till i get around 60 degrees on a hot day!

btw the refrigerant wrecks the ozone n stuff, dont be a shade tree and vent it to atmoshphere... have a shop recover it... at the shop we recover the freon, but i always put new stuff in... of all the different ac lubricants, i dont wanna contaminate a system by reusing old freon... the old stuff is for the people who dont wanna fix their leak and insist on us pumpin in the old stuff

Um. We recycle our freon through filter machines using new lubrication oil on systems that run less then one pound of R134a and output at 38 deg F w ambient of 84(L32/H230)
