2017 Ford Escape AC Compressor
I have a need to purchase an AC compressor for the vehicle described below.
I know the salvage / recycle yards have plenty (taken from wrecked vehicle, some with only a few hundred miles on the odometer), with widely varying prices, but significantly lower than buying new (like $325 lower).
The issue that is getting me confused is that some sellers claim that it is the same compressor/clutch assembly regardless of engine sizes. Others say the opposite.
Some claim that the same compressor is also used on other Ford vehicles.
I have done plenty of search, but only to get similar results.
I am not aware of any place that would identify what compressor is installed on this vehicle if I use the VIN. Perhaps someone who works at a Ford dealership has access to such information.
Any Ford parts expert who would assist with a DEFINITE answer please step in, and thank you in advance.
NOTE: This compressor uses the new refrigerant R1234YF
