AC Clutch bearing on Suburban making racket, loose

The clutch bearing is turning and making a racket. We are not sure how to get it off. Can the clutch bearing be replaced without replacing the entire clutch?

You can buy a bypass pulley for about 40 bucks and lose the ac, or you can replace the clutch only with one from a used unit( req's snap ring pliers and some dexterity) if you don't want to remove the compressor and have to recharge the refrigerant.

Get a rebuilt compressor or waste you money gambling on a clutch. It will have to come out anyway if you want to replace the bearing that is pressed in.

AC Compressor squeals when ac is running. Do i have to replace entire compressor or can you just change the bearing?


most likely the squeal is actually the compressor clutch u may be able to get an aftermarket clutch but it requires special tools to remove and install and u would still have to remove the compressor for the little bit of price difference i would replace the compressor and the belt

AC Clutch noise and vibration


An A/C clutch will not make this concern happen, more likely the A/C compressor is begining to go out. The belt on the A/C clutch Assy. free wheels (spins feree on the pulley) when clutch is not engaged. If concern is not present with A/C off this means the bearings in the puley assy. ok. Once the A/C clutch is engaged it locks the compressor against the spinning pulley and turn the compressor chaft and spins the A/C compressor internal shaft. If you hear a loud "screach" when you turn on the A/C it means the belt slipped for a second, if it continiues to screach it means either the belt is loose or that the compressor is internaly locking up. I wouild start by checking the belt tension (if not equipted with and auto tensioner). You can also remove the belt and turn on the A/C and attempt to turn the clutch/pulley by hand, it should turn with a little effect but should not bind or lock at times if that happens compressor is bad.

My 1993 chevrolet S-10 with a Manual Trans will not shift while the engine is running. I removed the inspection plate and saw the clutch disc's fingers look fine. The Clutch Slave Cylinder's rod is...


Nope the throw out bearing is fine if there is no noise from the bell housing, but it sounds like your clutch is worn and needs to be replaced. Good luck and check to see if your have enough fluid in your clutch hydraulic system and top it off and this may get you a few more days before you get the clutch replaced.

Suburban makes a clacking sound when accelerated and ac is on. When you shut ac off the sound stops. I replaced the tensioner pully this morning and it is still making the same sound


sounds like the clutch on the front of the a/c compressor unless the actual a/c compressor is locking up and causing the belt to slap.
the clutch would make a rattle like noise.

A/C BLOWS COLD BUT COMPRESSOR IS NOISY WHEN ACCELERATING


it sounds as if the Bearing is out on the A/c compressor you can just replace the bearing and save a lot of money but you need the right tools to do this to get your air gap set right on the clutch again i suggest takeing it to a shop you can trust for the repair

Screeching noise, then a/c stops blowing cold air. Still blows air, just not cold air.


it could be the air conditioning clutch going out. to check turn your car on and idle it with ac on and hood open. at the ac compressor it will have a pulley on it with a clutch that engages when the air conditioning is on. if it engages and disengages it can be the clutch itself has gone bad, the ac clutch will also disengage if there is not enough freon in the ac system, will also engage and disengage if the pressure gets too high in the ac system. Depending on the year of the vehicle it will disengage at full throttle and come back on when you are not at full throttle.
If it is a metallic sounding screech for example take a coke can and drag it across pavement kind of sound it could be a bad compressor or a bad ac clutch. If it is a more rubbery sound for example a car spinning its tires kind of noise it could be a loose belt.

1. Check to make sure all belts are tight under hood
2. start car and look at ac compressor to make sure compressor pulley is turning and that the fan clutch is engaged spinning
