#2 Pop the hood and make sure it's the compressor causing all the racket.  I
currently have a bad AC condenser fan and every time the compressor kicks on
the fan wobbles in it's bracket so much I think it's going to shoot out at
me.  :)  I'm thinking the bushings|bearings are shot and I should be able to
rebuild the electric motor and be good to go.

On a similar note, has anyone R&R'd an A/C cooling fan before?  Any tips?
Do I have to put the radiator in service mode?  Any tips on putting the
radiator in service mode?  :)
