Not doubting the total weight, odd though...I thought the compressor would be the heaviest part of the system. Any idea where the remainder of the weight is?

Eeek...I might consider giving up AC in the summer, but pulling the blower motor and killing off the chance of heat is hardcore.

I only pulled part of mine so about 15 pounds or so for me. I don't use AC anyways.

feels alot heavier when your under the car trying to remove and/or install one lol

I dont use my AC either and the compressor was messing up, bearing were out, so I opted for the bypass vs another $300 compressor
