If A/C compressor replaced, what other parts must be changed?
I have a 2006 Ford F150 XLT V8 4.6cy, I have a problem, I hear a noise when the A/C is running, when I turn on the A/C the noise start, when turn off noise desappear, I confirmed noise came from Compressor, the A/C works ok but noise is happen, I believe compresor need to be remplaced, So, probably I will buy a new compressor, but my question is...
Should I need to replace other parts like the accumulator to avoid new compressor get damaged? or just remplacing the compressor will be OK.
What do you recommend me.
Also the price of the new compressor in Autopart is around $209 + tax, and in ebay ~$140, do you think the parts through ebay regarding autoparts are competitive.
If you have experiance with that noise and problem could be other or compressor could be fixed please advice.
Thank you for your comments.
