is it really necessary to discharge the air condition system to remove the compressor in order to pull the engine? or is it possible to just pull the compressor (still hooked up) out of the way enough to get the motor by?


edit: oops. the car is a 97 legacy obw with a 2.5L ej25... i just looked under the hood and it looks like it could be possible...anybody tried?

I have been able to before but I suppose it depends on the motor.

When the dealer did my 97 OB last year, they just pulled it to the side and strung it up. No discharge.
