Answer
Hi Judith,
What do you mean by "died"? Is the system possibly low on refrigerant which will cause it to not be connected to its drive belt via blocking the clutch from connecting it? Maybe all you need to do is add refrigerant. I would be inclined to check out that possibility because there is in theory much less wear on the Concorde compressor.
I don't have the part number/interchangeability data but I would believe they might be interchangeable.
But if the compressor simply stopped being activated when you asked for a.c. I would certainly consider whether the refrigerant level is simply too low. Otherwise I would check this with a shop and see what they about the substitution and the cost.
