Check out the link below for a very good, detailed description with diagrams.
The ac compressor clutch is mounted on the front of the compressor and is a replaceable part. However depending on the complexity of the clutch change out it may be overall better to change the compressor and clutch together.
This is not cost effective. It's quicker and cheaper to replace the compressor.
You cannot change the compressor bearing, however, you can change the clutch bearing. Which one is bad? Is there a noise when the clutch is engaged, or not engaged?
bearing is shot
Either the pump bearings are bad or the ac clutch is going bad. The clutch can be replaced but the pump bearings are not generally cost effective to change.
Could be the clutch is gone. If that is the problem, you can have just the clutch changed, but don't wait too long. If it is the bearing, then have to change the compressor. When it is running, you will see the clutch wobble. The clutch can be changed with the compressor on the car. There is room.
If the clutch disengages properly then the compressor should not be running. Most likely the clutch itself is bad instead of the compressor.
The AC clutch is on the front of the compressor where the belt rides. When power is applied to the clutch it engages to turn the compressor. It is basically a magnet a/c compressor clutch is the ound thing on the front of the compressor with pulley wheel attached. this clutch is an electro magnetic clutch that when electricity is supplied, engages so as the a/c compressor is driven ,which can then pump freon thru the ac system
Do y need puller to replace ac clutch on compressor. 2004 expition
If it is working fine, and the noise is only when it is disengaged you should only need to change the clutch on the compressor not the entire compressor. If there is room to pull the clutch off on the truck, then there is no need to evacuate the refrigerant.
I am sure you can - but the clutch is abpout the same price as a rebuilt compressor. So last time i did this I bought the compressor, removed the cluth, and put it on my car compressor. I still have a compressor if I need one. Be sure your compressor is not locked up before you go buy anything.
It should be right on the front of the compressor - usually the clutch is inside the v-belt/serpentine pulley on the compressor
Bad A/C compressor clutch. Bad A/C compressor clutch.
AC Compressor clutch relay may be stuck. Remove the relay and see if the clutch releases.
how do you replace the AC compressor clutch on 2006 liberty
If the AC pulley is locking up when the ac compressor clutch engages, it's not a clutch problem, it's a compressor problem. But yes, the AC clutch can usually be replaced separately. The problem is, if the clutch is worn out the compressor is probably worn out as well. It usually isn't that much more to replace the whole thing.
My car is going through the same issue with the A/C. You CAN replace the compressor clutch without replacing the compressor, but the caveat is that you can't tell if the compressor is any good without a clutch. So basically you are gambling that the compressor will still be good by only replacing the clutch. Hope this helps!
The clutch bearing for an AC compressor is located in the center of the clutch. If the bearing goes bad, then the clutch is replaced as a whole part rather than changing the bearing.
no, unless u have to remove the compressor unit. The clutch can be replaced with out removing the compressor if you have room to do it.
The air conditioning compressor clutch relay is located on the bottom of the air conditioner compressor. The relay switch will be labeled.
You may have a bad compressor clutch coil, you need to check the coil and work from there................
The AC clutch cannot be replaced without physically removing the compressor on a 1997 Mercury Sable. The compressor and magnetic plate must be removed before you can access the clutch.
You releave the pursure on the fan belt with a 3/8
Oiling the a/c clutch will cause the clutch to slip and burn up........
Your compressor is going out. Probably you threw a piston in the compressor or the bearings in your clutch went out. If you put freon in before this happened you overfilled it and blew the seals.
