First thing to do is check that the compressor clutch is engaging, when it is not working properly. If the outer pully is turning, as it does whenever the engine is running, and the inner part of the clutch is not turning, that could be your problem bad clutch or electrical connection . The inner and outer parts of the clutch need to be turning for the compressor to function. Have someone turn the AC on and off while you watch the clutch.

What wires cause an air compressor to stop turning on a 1989 Mazda mx6?

Already changed fuse and air conditioning compressor clutch assembly but no power going to cause the compressor to kick on to pull back the clutch so that compressor kicks on what could be the cause?

What specific kind of vehicle do you have? It does sound like the clutch may be bad, but we also need to know what you are working on. You need to run power straight from the battery to the compressor. If is still does not engage then you need to replace the compressor and clutch, they are dead. If they do engage, then you have a wiring or computer issue.

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.

How do you remove the ac clutch from the compressor on a 93 Nissan 300zx?

The AC Compressor Clutch, more commonly known as a "Magneto Clutch", requires a special tool Usually the clutch itself is almost as expensive as the entire compressor, you'd probably be better off buying a new remanufactured one. But if you have your heart set on doing it yourself, find a Snap-On truck, and tell them you need a Magneto Clutch removal tool, it'll cost you about $150 for the tool (if I remember correctly when I bought mine a few years back). You're probably looking at another $200 for the magneto clutch. ANd the compressor probably costs about $250. The magneto clutch tool is self explanitory.

AC compressor - clutch seems to be locking upmaking noise can only the clutch be replaced or does the entire Compressor need to be replaced?

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.

Can you replace the AC clutch on a 2004 Honda accord without replacing the compressor?

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!
