Almost all a/c compressors for the last 20 years require a puller/installer. Look at the hub where the retaining nut on the compressor shaft is... look for threads inside this hub. If they are there you will most certainly need the tools. Remove the retaining nut from the shaft, screw the puller into the hub's internal threads, tighter the center bolt on the puller to push against the compressor shaft. This pushes the clutch off. To install, screw the center section (bolt) of the installer over the threaded shaft, turn the outer portion to push the clutch back onto unit. This will all become clear once you see the tools. Make certain you obtain the correct tooling as there are different pullers/installers for various compressors.

How to change a/c clutch bearing


This car has 2 different compressors 1 is SANDEN and other is CV171 but both require a specail puller to remove the outer clutch hub This puller screws on to the main shaft and has a threaded nut (outer side ) that screws into hub this removes hub then remove snap ring off compressor snout and install a spacer (specail tool) this covers the main shaft not to damage thrust bearing internal of compressor and a second puller can remove pulley. Most bearings are swedge fitted so the whole pulley needs to be replaced this comes in kit with a clutch coil also it is held on with a snap ring also. there are small washers (shims) that adjust the air gap on the pulley to hub set @ .025-.045

i think the hub is threaded on to shaft tip.
some types:
One is for a MINI YORK CMPR, YORK OR TECUMSEH compressor and one is for a SANDEN/SANKYO compressor.


some need a puller
others, need that and a holder to keep it still
do not mix up or lose any spacers inside.
a newbearing is easy to find and replace. on car.
most cars.

AC CLUTCH


Not without proper specialized tools. Also will have to have your a/c system checked for leaks and refilled. It would be alot easier to just replace the whole compressor.

The ac compressor clutch is not working can i change the clutch or the whole compressor


Hi , I'm David i'll be assissting you today.

To answer your question you can only put a new A/C Clutch on your Compressor.

It will require you to use a Special Tool to Remove the Clutch.

A/C Clutch Puller some Auto Stores may rent these Pullers by only putting a new Clutch on you'll save at Least $200.00-$300.00 ,Plus you don't have to Evacuate your A/C System.

So if i was having the same problem, I would just change out the bad A/C Clutch and Replace it Only:

A/C Compressor Noise


It sound like the A/C Compressor Clutch & Pulley Bearing, If it was the AC compressor bearing. You would see the oil leaking from the compressor and most likely have a non working AC.

How you do it:
Remove the serpentine belt and unbolt the compressor from it's mounts and tilt it up so you can get to the front easier. Use the clutch removal tool to pull off the clutch. Remove the large snap ring in front of the pulley. Spray some WD40 in the hub area and remove the pulley from the compressor. It's best to use the universal puller.

If you don't have the puller or forgot to rent it, bolt the compressor back down to it's mount and carefully pry the pulley away from the compressor. Be careful and don't stress the gas lines. The pulley bearing is pressed onto the aluminum casting of the compressor body so you are not prying against the compressor shaft. The bearing can be hard to remove because the steel bearing in contact with the aluminum frame will cause a dissimilar metal weld.

Clean off all the surfaces and threads using a wire brush and / or some sand paper. Note: The white circular object is the magnetic coil that activates the A/C. Place the new hub on the frame and tap into place with a piece of wood or use the special puller tool which will also press the new hub into the frame. Press the hub in until the groove is exposed enough to install the large snap ring. Install the large snap ring. Make sure it is seated all the way around. Install the clutch assembly taking care to position the shaft key in the compressor slot. Use the special installer tool to press the clutch into place. Leave between .020 and .030 air gap between the hub and the clutch.

Note: Some of the clutch replacement kits come with the coil. The coil is a circular elector magnet that pulls the clutch in and activates the compressor. While trying to get the coil off I removed a snap ring inside the hub which was holding the seal causing all the gas in the system to blow out; so be careful. Mark the electrical terminal location of the coil.

There is a special puller/ installer tool for removing the coil. If you don't have the puller try the following but you are on your own as far as damaging the compressor or seals.

The coil can be removed by working a couple of screw drivers behind the coil against the compressor frame. Be very careful and don’t try and force it. Be extra careful putting the new one on, it has a seal with a brass ring that needs to be pushed on. If you hit it with a socket you might nick it and the seal will probably fail.

The Clutch kit from NAPA lists for 299.67 and they can sell it for 195.91. What a markup when you go somewhere else to have it done. Another thing the clutch puller / installer #78-3213 works really good. It lists for 38.46 and they sell it for 26.99. I was told to make the air gap between the clutch and the pulley assembly between 20-30 thousands. A big note, when you get the clutch off put the tool back on and try and move the shaft up and down and sideways. If it moves around the bearings and seal are probably bad and no need to just replace the clutch.

Good luck and hope this helps keeps you from replacing the whole unit.

How do you go about disconnecting the clutch on an a/c compressor in a 1996 chevy blazer?


Removel:

  • Use the clutch removal tool to pull off the clutch.
  • Remove the large snap ring in front of the pulley.
  • Spray some WD40 in the hub area and remove the pulley from the compressor. It's best to use the universal puller.

Good luck and keep me posted, Be glad to answer any questions you may have and if you need help replacing the coil also, (clutch core)
