Replacing A/C Compressor

Does anyone have a good set of instructions to remove and replace my A/C Compressor on a 1991 e36 (318i)? Not the bolt removal, but how to change out the actual compressor? Also, where on the installed compressor would I possibly find the correct model numbers to find a replacement?

Thanks ahead...

At the top of the E36 section is a sticky containing a link to the Bentley Service Manual. It's in PDF format. It should have some information and instructions for it's removal. - Alberta based BMW Community
