I had to unbolt the brackets in order to remove the drier. Plus you can see the lines condition under the brackets. YMMV as always.

Ok, i got the compressor in and the manifold on without disconnecting the 2 lines on top, it was a piece of cake. However, i was wondering if i should disconnect them and replace the o rings since i have new ones? Or just leave well enough alone since there are no signs of leakage there? What you guys think?

Now i have to tackle the dryer. Im considering just leaving it alone. since im not replacing anything else is it worth the effort? Thanks

The driver should be replaced.

Going back in is going to suck if the system doesn’t work correctly. I tried to not do it and ending having to pull the refrigerant back out which wasted $30.

Seems foolish when it is required to be honest. Most compressors are not warrantied if you skip it.

Has to be a reason.

Pull the air out of the system when done. If it holds I would
Leave the rings alone. If it leaks I would start there.

Ok, I replaced the dryer. A bit of a pain but not as bad as i thought!

Replace o-rings only if the connection was disturbed at all. I would treat it the same way we treat fuel injectors.

Been there, done that, both counts. :oops:
