nothing can be as bad as this POS ford taurus I changed the compressor on.
for the same work I think I could have swapped 2 alfa motors and did the AC too on each.
You can't even change the spark plugs with out disassembling the motor an the dam ford.
I have not seen the spider but my guess it is more or less the same as the one on the v6.
It has 2 flex hoses on it so just un bolt it and move it/rotate it pointing up so you can get at the clutch. There are a lot of vids on the web on changing clutches they are all same more or less of you get one with the same compressor which is most everything not ford/gm/chevy
everyone else use the Sanden and all have the same parts I think you have the sd508 but they are the same I think any ways I think the only real difference is the 2 types V belt and the flat belt type.
