The system is pressurized with compressed refrigerant, and is illegal to release into the air. you must have a license to work on these systems. take it to a repair shop.

Tried to replace my ac pully with a bypass pully removed all the bolts and I still can't get it budge to remove it.. I say for an hour trying but no luck help?

If you are installing a bypass pulley it will eliminate the A/C compressor thus eliminating your A/C. With that being said, you need to evacuate the system. (If there is anything in it), Remove the whole A/C compressor from the car and then install the bypass pulley where the compressor would mount to the engine. If you are trying to remove the pulley on the A/C compressor to replace it then you will need a special tool (A/C Clutch Pulley Puller) that is usually available at most auto parts store on the "Loan a Tool" programs.

The compressor is located on the engine with a belt driving it, It is usually down the bottom where you can't get to it, most of them are removed from underneath. You have 3 or 4 things that are belt driven, in case you don't know which is which, the power steering pump, the alternator, and the ac compressor, and sometimes you will find an air pump, or a water pump. The ac compressor is easily identified by the 2 big aluminum pipes going into it. Hope this helps.

Ac compressor clutch is making a noise is the clutch is replaceable without replacing compressor

I had the same issue with my 2006. I thought the compressor clutch bearings were faulty. After further research, the rattling noise was actually coming from the serpentine belt tensioner. Easy repair!
Hope this helps.

How to remove a ac/compresor

To Remove the AC compressor you first have to have the freon vacumed out before you break the lines. If the freon has already leaked out then you dont have to worry about it. The AC generally has four mounting bolts securing it to the engine loosen those four bolts as well as the two AC lines and the belt. If you are trying to replace the AC compressor yourself you will need to know this is a complex job. Most places will not warranty the compressor unless you also replace the accumilator as well as the orfice tube or expansion valve which ever the case may be.You will also want to flush out the system with AC flush and while you are removing each part be sure to replace the o rings associated with each part. Once you have all the parts back together then you need to have the system vacumed out to remove all the moisture this is crucial other wise you will have prmature failer of your compressor. Once all this has been done then you can charge the system back up. Oh as you remove each part plug the lines to prevent contamination from getting in there. The compressor may or may not come pre oiled so youll need to oil the system back up.

1999 Mitsubishi Eclipse Spyder A/C Only Blows Hot Air

I would take it back to whoever replaced the module however, if you want to check for the problem yourself, Look for the AC compressor. with the AC turned off have someone start the vehicle, while watching the AC compressor have the person in the vehicle turn the AC on. If the clutch engages then you have lost your freon charge and need to have the AC unit serviced. If it does not start turn the engine off and check all the wiring connections going to the AC compressor. If all the connections are good start the vehicle, and have the person in the vehicle turn the control to cold and turn on the defroster. If the AC clutch engages then you have a bad ECM module or mis-programmed ECM take it back to be Properly programmed and repaired. If the clutch does not engage it is possible the AC compressor is bad. Take the vehicle to the Mechanic to have teh AC system checked to see why it is not engaging.
