I believe you mean Ac Compressor and not Condense. The condenser is just a finned heat exchanger and has no moving parts.

Look up your donor car and the car you need the part for on rock auto and compare part numbers. If they aren't the same and don't interchange to the same number than the part is different

Just replaced my AC Compressor last week. Old unit had leaky seal and lost freon over course of the summer. New unit cost $225 which included the Compressor, Drier, Front Expansion Valve, Pint of Oil and Gasket Kit. Compressor comes with a one year warranty.

I traded my electrical skills for AC replacement labor and think I made out the better of the deal. The four mounting bolts were a bear to remove and it took about 9 total hours to complete.

I'm looking at keeping my '05 FS for at least two years. Only has 84,000 miles and is in super condition. This is also my third FS.
