Hey guy's, my VP is going in tommorow morning to have it's engine and gearbox mounts done, now the mech said if i take the Air con pump off prior it will save me some money. I've had a look under the bonnet, but i'm not really sure what i have to remove. Theres a canister type thing on the back passenger side which say Jayair on it, i've removed this, is there anything else i have to take off. Im not really worried about re-asembly right now cause the Air dosent work anyway...Thank you any one who can help:thumbsup:

Dont worry about the canister, he means the acutaly pump. It has a belt going to it at the bottom right of your engine near your CAS.

The only thing is, if the canister is still filled with gas, there will be no way to remove the pump otherwise you will vent gas into the atmosphere... which is bad! Just the pump needs to come off...

why would you need to remove anything to start with?
i thought it was as easy as unbolt the engine and lift it a little, change the mounts and re-secure.
gearbox is basically unbolt, lower slightly and replace - that simple.

The right hand side is a prick to do without the air con off, the retainer bolts are hard to get too..

Gearbox is literally easy as piss....

I looked at that and thought it had to come out, what about the belt, looked like it would be loose after i took out what i think i have to take out. ?

ok a good idea would be to undo the bottom couple bolts on the ac compressor as they are the hards ones to get at.

four bolts thatgo into the cmpressor from the side the 2 bottom ones are a bitch to remove.
get a belt for a non ac commodore and leave the compressor out.

So once i remove the pump, the belt will no longer fit right? How did the mech in that case, expect me to remove it and then drive it to him?
