    well, this can be hard and i recommend taking gt the dealer for this repair(bearings replacement). the actual bearings would have to be ordered form the manufacture. i doubt that auto zone will have the bearing set for the clutch but, i could be wrong. they may have the bearing pack.

    You should no that, most dealers and mechanics will say that it is best to buy the clutch because of the degree of difficulty concerning this bearing replacement.

    It all depends on how bad the condition is and how loud the bearings are screaming. if they are slightly dry and the squealing is moderate, the consistent lube may heel the noise for a short time.If you take the junk yard route, be sure that the compressor spins freely and the ports are in good condition as well.
