Installing regulated return

I am installing a regulated return system and I cannot get the AC compressor mount to come off. Is it just those three bolts that hold it in or is there more? Thanks for the help.

Pull the HPOP res, much easier.

Re: Installing regulated return

It will spill a lot of oil if you don't suck it out first.

Re: Installing regulated return

where is the fourth one at? The tensioner pulleys get right in the way.

Re: Installing regulated return

I just did my reg return. I recall 4 bolts holding the AC compressor down, all 4 were on top. There are two electrical connectors as well. I just took the 4 bolts off and the connectors and moved it aside and was able to gain access to the front port.

Thats all I did.... pull the 4 bolts from the top of the AC compressor, unplug the electrical connector and swing the compressor out of the way..... I didn't pull the bracket off, and I didn't take the HPOP res off either....
