Can you please tell me the exact location of the receiver drier for this car? Also the car currently has an air conditioner bypass pulley installed due to past compressor trouble. Do new compressors automatically come with the mounting bolts and if not can I use the ones that are currently holding the bypass pulley in place? I would really appreciate it if you could also provide some flushing instructions for the air conditioning system. Thank you so much for your help.

Best thing for flushing system is to have it professionally done. As far as compressor goes if brackets are in place then it should bolt up with new bolts making sure they are metric. If you do n'o have it a junkyard would be best for replacement. Compressors will not come with bolts I do not think. Also they may not have any oil in them either. Put no more than 2 oz of PAG oil in compressor if none in it. Also spin over by hand before putting a charge to system so as to not damage new compressor. Receiver drier is item 2 in picture.

Thank you for your answer. Do you know if the receiver drier is in fact located in the passenger side front wheel well? It doesn't appear to be visible in the engine bay. Also does the compressor for a Beretta use a pressure switch which is mounted on the outside of it? If so, will the new compressor come with this pressure switch? I don't have the old compressor from which to switch parts. Sorry for all the questions. Thanks for any help you could give.

If you look again at the picture I sent the compressor is on passenger side and if you look under air cleaner you may have to remove it the drier should be mounted to frame on driver's side if it's there at all. It should be replaced anyhow. Your best bet is to go to a junk yard take a picture of what you need and what you don't have. Compare the two. Then get what you need either from a junkyard or new. There will be probably be a core charge on the compressor so check on how much it is then check how much a junk yard wants for one if it's cheaper to buy the junker than the core charge get that so you save a little money.
