Hello, I just joined the site and have a question. Where is the AC compressor located? A while ago, I hit a deer on the passenger side and it dented the front bumper and fender. It has just stopped cooling and I was wondering if the AC was damaged. Any help will be appreciated.

Looks like the AC Compressor is indeed located on the passenger's side of the vehicle. But if it was a deer hit that caused the damage, your compressor itself is likely OK. More likely that one of the pressurized AC hoses was either split or jarred loose from one of its fittings, causing the refrigerant to leak out. Better add that to your insurance claim for the deer incident.

Wow, a deer hit? When my mom hit a deer with her Mercury Sable it was $1500 worth of fixing before she could drive it. The deer walked away.

I had a friend look at it last night. Just the outside was damaged everything on the inside is ok. The issue was the hose was rubbing against the belt/pulley for who knows how long. The hose is very close to the pulley and does not seem like a good spot. Thanks for the help.

Yeah, it will be about $3,500 in damage.

I went to school at the University of Oregon and my insurance company actually had a rider for deer hits. Pretty interesting policy... Different deductible if you couldn't bring in the deer with you for part of the claim.
