Can you please advise me on how long it should take a " professional" to replace the serpentine belt and A/C compressor?
My engine is a 24V 3.0L DOHC.
Thank you!

Belt isnt a big job, but the compressor can take a few hours, you need to evacuate the refridgerant, then remove it then recharge it, if your compressor suffered the Black death, you also need to install an inline filter and run for an hour or so. If this isnt done, your new compressor will fail. O yeah did I mention the orifce tube? That needs to be replaced with the compressor.
