I am in the process of rebuilding the air conditioning system in my 330 sedan. After nearly 20 years of use it's leaking in many places. Dashboard and a/c unit have come out and a new evaporator has been installed, and I'm now just waiting for new o rings and a compressor that doesn't leak.

Instead of replacing the compressor for at least AU$1000, I thought I'd go down the path of rebuilding it. I found a rebuild kit in the US for $35 and it's on the way. Pulling apart the compressor is pretty simple, with only a few seals etc that will need replacing. As long as the rest of it is fine, which mine was, then a bunch of money can be saved.

Video below of how to pull apart and explanation of the unit.
