No ned to. Unless clutch is engaged (AC on) it freewheels-using no power.
could be a bad bearing on the air conditioner clutch assembly.
I'm investigating this as well. I have a 2008 and have been told the air conditioner is only off when you have the vents on the floor only. Still checking this out.
yes you can
On all cars, the air conditioner clutch is on the front of the air conditioner compressor. The clutch is a unit by itself, while it's mounted on the shaft which is part of the compressor. A belt drives the clutch, and the clutch (when engaged) drives the compressor. Clutches tend to be held on in odd ways, snap rings might be involved. Also a puller is usually needed. Don't head into this without checking the information for your specific car.
An air conditioner clutch will not engage without voltage. If it doesn't engage, the compressor will not turn.
It keeps popping out of auto "WHY"
There is no fuses for the air conditioning clutch, but there is a relay mounted on the passenger fender beside the fuel pump relay.
See if hot wire hot with switch on.
It is possible to replace the air conditioner clutch without replacing the entire compressor if you can find somewhere that sells just the clutch assembly and can get the appropriate tool to remove the pulley to get to the clutch. Try buying a repair manual and looking in there.
your cabin air filter is probably plugged
get fan clutch checked may be blowing air but not enough
it simply means you have to add freon to ur air conditioner....you can buy freon at any auto parts store.
The clutch is working fine. The problem could be as simple as a loose belt.
No, oil will ruin the clutch. Noise that sound like you need oil means a bearing or the compressor has failed.
Incorrect refrigerant charge?
Need to know what your question is. Re-post with your question.
Try searching autozone.com...............
Clutch bearing may be going out on kompressor.
The air conditioning compressor clutch relay is located on the bottom of the air conditioner compressor. The relay switch will be labeled.
Check the thermostat. Make sure the fan switch is on auto. If it is disconnect the green wire from the control box at the air handler. This will disconnect the fan from the thermostat. If the fan continues to run, you have a stuck fan relay. If the fan shuts off, you have a bad thermostat.
3 - 5 degrees
No.....its a both a waste of time and money............
