    a/c compressor seized

    the pulley for the a/c compressor had seized regardless of whether the air con is on or off.
    is it possible to drain the refrigerant swap the compressor and get a specialist to refill the system?

    many thanks

    You need the specialist to drain the sytem too as letting it out to atmosphere is ilegal. Oh and its pretty bad for you too,lol
