I have a bad A/C compressor bearing, so I'm still deciding whether to replace the whole compressor or just the bearing and clutch assembly. But either way I have a problem. One I have never replaced a clutch on a A/C compressor so I would have to look up how to do that. (Which I know I'm more than capable in replacing it, just learning how to do it.) The other way, replacing the whole compressor, I have been told if you replace the A/C compressor that I would have to replace the liquid tube as well, which isn't offered by Ford anymore. Is this true? Or could someone point me in the right direction to find out? I have always used factory parts on my car and I don't want any aftermarket BS from O'Reillys, Napa, Autozone, etc.
