Subject: AC in '87 Turbo 900...


hello, I have a question for anyone who has removed/worked on their AC. I have an '87 turbo 900 (16v) which I just recently purchased. I didn't/haven't yet tested the AC to see if it works. I have seen several posts regarding recharging systems with the 134 freon, which - if that's all it needs - sounds pretty good. however, I am wondering, in the event that there is something else wrong (compressor has failed, etc) is it reasonable to remove the AC system from the car altogether? for one thing, it would make the back of the engine (specifically the alternator) more accessible, and would also cut down on various load factors (weight, pulley/belt (which could be removed), coolant flow, under-the-hood-hose-tangle, etc). just curious - thanks for any answers. -- Nate t. G.
