Need to know what I should do to disconnect my a/c compressor. Compressor went out and do not want to spend the money to fix. Going old school driving the car without a/c. Anyway I had the mechanic disconnect it on the passenger side underneath the hood and the car started to act up. Car would shift hard and speedometer would start to go up when at a stop.
I took it back and he reconnected it and the car seems to shift fine and speedometer seems to be working fine. So with that in mind, I wanted to know what is the best way to disconnect compressor without impacting other things on my car. I am a novice mechanic so I would like to work on it myself. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
Thank you

Ok, not so good news on the car. The car is still having some issues. This morning when I started it, the car was about to stall. The speedometer went down then back up and down again. When it went down, it sounded like it was about to stall. The transmission appears to be shifting a little hard but not as bad. Also, as a side note, after the mechanic reconnected the A/C, I went and got gas. When I pulled away, the gas gage was still reading half full. I pulled into the driveway and turned it off and restarted it and the gas gage read correctly (Full Tank of Gas). Anyway, this issue seems to be more complicated than I originally thought. Also, an additional side note, I did receive codes associated the Transmission Control module and the Speed controll module. I do not have the codes handy but I will update this message once I get my hands on it.

At the firewall where the ac lines go into the car is the low pressure switch. Remove that connector and that will disable the compressor.
