I had a pre-purchase inspection done on the 2002 V6 S-type I recently purchased. Among other things, I was told the a/c compressor is leaking and that I need to replace it. On Rock Auto I found two compressors in the $190.00 to $240.00 range. On E-bay I found a wide variety of offerings, some as low as $100.00. A number of the E-bay compressors were listed as “Lncoln LS, fits Jaguar S-type.” I understand many Lincoln LS parts fir the S-type, but I’ll bet there is room for some confusion.
The bush I am beating about is this: I would greatly appreciate some advice as to which compressor to buy. I don’t mind paying a little more for better quality, but I’d rather not pay more unnecessarily.
Also, I would be grateful for any instructions for removing the compressor. My plan is to replace the compressor myself, then take it to a reputable a/c shop and have them charge it.
Thanks again for your help!
