Yes but you may as well remove the unit too and blank off the rubber hose that is for the Exhaust Gas Recirculation (if it's like my M-Power engine)

The pump may seize otherwise and become useless:frown

What I have explained above is exactly what I did with my air con pump:thumbsup

So long as you have good access to the underside of the car then removal is not that difficult.:thumbsup

By doing this you may free up an extra BHP or two and make the car lighter:hihi

Had a look under the car. Its hard to get to the belt. lol.But it looks ok to get at the aircon.
What will i have to take off all together mate? Belt, Aircon, Rad. Anything else?
When u said up there^^ block the pipes up. How do I block them up?
Will i lose water from the coolant tank?

May be worth having your air con system drained as the system is pressurised - Not something you want to mess about with yourself:thumbsup
