I removed my AC components not too long ago and I just noticed a very slow oil leak from the bracket that holds the compressor in place. The big black one on the front of the block.

When I was removing the compressor I erroneously started to remove one of those bolts but stopped when I realized how it was held in place. I imagine that there is a gasket sealing the compressor bracket to the block, or there's an oil channel behind one of these bolts. Why there is an oil channel there is beyond my reasoning.

So what needs to happen here? Can I drain the oil, reseal the bolt, and it will stop leaking? Or do I need to take the entire bracket off. Thanks!

The leak is not from the bracket the bracket bolts to the block and oil pump. Clean it good and look for where the oil could be coming from. Could be oil pump gasket or one of the plugs in side of oil pump,or bolts from oil pump to block could be not tight. I have had a car that the bolts were loose and one was missing it had a leak. Check to make sure they are good and tight. Good luck with your leak.
