I am doing that at the shop rightnow, though I doubt you have an overhead lift like I do. It really needs to come out the bottom. I have the car up on the lift, and have the lower engine cradle unbolted right now. I will be lowering the engine cradle and removin the engine mount on the right front corner to gain access and replace the compressor in the morning. That is the easiest way. I suppose , you could clear everything, and I mean everything in the way, and bring it out the top, but it will be very difficult, because there is just not much room between the engine and the radiator support. They build these cars from the bottom up, at the factory, so most repairs like this require you work on them from the bottom up.
