Well I guess when the AC is finally gone I'm going without AC for a while, I can't be spending $1000 on replacing things that aren't strictly necessary in my life at this time. That takes away a lot of the faith I had in Subaru, knowing that they definitely knew that the AC compressor was an issue but refused to issue a recall. Every year a $1000 replacement gets closer to taking over the value of the car too, I was hoping I was going to keep this another decade but now I'm starting to question that.
This job cost me $627.

I paid $245 for the condenser locally, same day. Rock Auto had it for $70, but I didn't want the car down for another week. Not knowing the accumulator was built in cost me $175.

I also paid an extra $90 for the piston compressor.

If you borrow a manifold and vacuum pump from an Autozone, you could install a new vane compressor for $362 or a piston compressor for $452.
