A.C. compressor replacement

Hey,

I have a 2006 GTO, I bought it brand new back in April of 2007 with like 200 miles on it, now at about 46,000 miles the ac compressor just went out. I was quoted 1,800 dollars for a full ac repair since it is now 10,000 out of warrenty. I have done an ac condensor and compressor/dryer replacement on my fiancee's escort Zx2 lol. I'm sure I can replace mine for way cheaper then 1,800 only problem is with hers I had the repair book. And all the local auto parts stores do not carry nor can get a repair catalog for the goat. Does anyone know where I can get one or at least have the detail of an ac compressor/ condensor repair. I tried googleing it but a lot ask for money up front and I don't want to pay unless I know its what I need. I would just feel more comfortable with a step by step guide for where exactly everything is on the GTO. If anyone knows where I can find one could you please let me know...thank you it would be appreciated. Before spring preferable lol Florida sucks that time of year with no AC.

Thanks,

Billy.

You can buy the GM book for like $150 from GM Parts House.

$1800 estimate? I hope thats for a while new system including lines and everything.

Alright I'll look into that thanks. And as far as I could recall cause the quote was done a few weeks back. the mechanic said that its a compressor/ and condensor replacement didn't go into any details really because the $1,800.00 pretty much shot me down for getting it done. He did say that the only place he could get a new compressor for a 2006 GTO was all the way in New Mexico, and thats its something like 3.7 hours work on just the compressor. But either way I'm expecting to pay quite a bit, but not that much and I'm completly fine with using used parts as long as there not **** and have like a 90 day warrenty or what not.

The parts are high. I don't have AC either because my high pressure side line broke and I refuse to pay GM $100s for 2 feet of alumium piping with a fitting on the end and since my car is a DD I really haven't had time/being lazy to take the hose off and have a shop fab something up.
