    I'm looking at this one and the one on the car. It doesn't look the same. I thought hm. Maybe they have this plate to well. Not have things get into the line holes. But no. So any ideas?

    I get a lot of compressors that way at the shop. It's normal to have to re-use the cover that the hoses and/or charge ports are on. It make is a little more time consuming. Be sure to toss the gasket that's currently on the new compressor as it's crushed from being installed by the temporary cover. There is a new gasket that came with it. Use it along with the old cover on your old compressor. While you have the cover off, you must drain the compressor and fill it with the right amount of oil. Some people drain the old compressor by turning the pulley and catching it in a container then putting that amount of new oil into the new compressor.

    How will you we vacuuming and charging the system?

    I haven't really thought about that. The main reason I bought the compressor is because my old bolts that connect my hose to the compressor busted off into the compressor so I was hoping it would come with the hardware.

    You should be able to use the bolts holding the cap on the new compressor to install the old plate

    I meant the ones that actually connect the A/C lines to the cap.

    when did they start selling compressors like that? thats fuc'n retarded. those things always get stripped threads and broken bolts. Mitsubishi only sells the compressor with the refrigerant lines connection plate or what ever the fuc you call it. So your gonna have to get one at a junkyard, or buy an OEM compressor
