Cool 03 ac compressor question

i have a 2003 ford focus se 2.0l sohc the vin is 1fafp34p43w126741

im trying to find a compressor that will fit my car, the ones that the auto parts stores sell the connector is not in the correct spot and they all sell it the same way. the connector on mine is at 6 oclock(i think) and the connector on the new ones are at 3.

the problem with it being at 3 is that the connector is pushed up against the engine. i dont want it to break then have to keep replacing the connector because of that.

here are some pics of the old compressor so you can see what it looks like.







thanks for the help in advance :)

Try looking at parts for an '02.
If that doesn't work you may have to remove the clutch and clock it.

i ended up buying the compressor for the svt, it was an exact match except except for the condenser opening was too big, so i had to buy a new line. and now it runs super cold. just in time for summer for the 115 degree weather :D
