Funny that this came up. I was about to ask a technical question about my AC.

I think if I grenaded the compressor, Iíd pull it all out and enjoy the weight savings. Thatís expensive and requires some fairly professional attention which Iím not willing to pay for (nor able...I blame my watch habit.) Otherwise...if itís basically working and just needs a fairly minor repair, yeah, Iíd try to save it.

I quit trucking and have a couple of jobs right now. One is basically out in the elements out in humid subtropical Texas. Highs this week should be around 95*f (35*c), generally with high humidity, so this is the first time in my life where I genuinely want the small luxury of air conditioning in my car.
