Yes! Disconnect the power to the A/C compressor clutch. Nothing else need be done.
It is important to know the signs of a bad car part. If an AC clutch bearing going bad, the biggest indication would be the trouble driving with the AC on in the car.
If the compressor is bad or noisy and the AC clutch is okay try unplugging the AC clutch fuse or relay.
AC Compressor clutch relay may be stuck. Remove the relay and see if the clutch releases.
The AC compressor is belt driven. There is an electric clutch that engages the belt drive to the compressor. The circuit for the clutch is driven by the Powertrain Control Module (PCM), which might feed to a relay used to drive the clutch. The PCM receives a start signal from the dashboard control knob or switch. There may also be a refrigerant pressure sensor that can moderate the output of the PCM to the AC clutch signal.
Compressor/clutch is about to go bad, if has a serpentine belt when it does no driving the car, better get it checked while car can drive, oh ya stop using AC till its checked.
Check the ac compressor and clutch to see where the noise is coming from. Also check the compressor drive belt for wear.
Yes it can and more so on smaller vehicles......
No ned to. Unless clutch is engaged (AC on) it freewheels-using no power.
yes but a very special tool is needed
Check the driver belt, tensioner and the a/c clutch and compressor.......
