My 94 grand marquis shut off seconds after a loud grinding noise that sounded like it was coming from the front left hand side. I tried turning it back on after it happened and the check engine and oi

I interpret this as the Passengers side of your car. Usually the serpentine belt breaks when the A/C compressor seizes. That is the part which is probably grinding or the A/C clutch bearing is seized.

Although this is Winter, the Defroster is made to activate the compressor to lube it during the Winter. Now the pulley that turns the compressor has a clutch bearing. It is ALWAYS turning when the engine is on except when electricity is applied to the compressor clutch and it locks and turns the A/C compressor shaft.

What needs to be done now is to determine if the A/C clutch bearing is bad or if the A/C compressor is bad. Most A/C clutch bearings can be removed and replaced. SOME of the bearings within the A/C clutch can be changed and then they are as good as new.

The procedure for replacing the bearing is 1 step beyond replacing the entire A/C clutch. The fan shroud must be removed, the serpentine belt must come off, then a small bolt and a retaining clip must be removed and the clutch slid off the compressor.

There is no need to remove the compressor or lose Freon. The bearing situation can be determined once the serpentine belt is removed and the parts turned by hand.

How to change the a/c compressor clutch?

changing the clutch does not require flushing system. only time system is flushed is when compressor goes bad but you are doing just the clutch. how much more for compressor and are you sure compressor is good? why did clutch go bad? most clutches go bad due to bad compressor, they burn out ,unless it just shorted and wont engage.

Air conditioner compressor seized up?

If the compressor is old, it's not worth the money to just change the clutch. If debris from the compressor gets through all the lines and in the expansion valve, evap and cond coil

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:

My clutch for the compressor is bad. 98 nissan froniter 4cyclinder . Is it possible to change clutch without removing compressor? Or should I just change entire compressor out?

It is possible to change the clutch out if you can find someone who will sell them. Check out some place like, check out the power transmissions tab, and click on clutches, and you may find one. Otherwise, it's difficult to find the clutches by themselves. You'll need a puller to get the old one off.

Air cond compressor locked up

Was it the compressor or the compressor clutch? The compressor clutch can be changed out cheaper than the compressor. So make sure you check it out before going foward with changing out the compressor.

Ac clutch does not get power checked fuses and relays all look good. it will click if i jump power is there a known probleml. car sat for a year

Yep your Compressor clutch has gone bad.
You can either change the whole compressor, or just have the clutch changed on the compressor.
You are better off having the whole compressor changed; by the time you pay the labor to have it taken out, clutch changed, and reinstalled, you could have just paid for the new A/C compressor.

No power to compressor or clutch

Charge it until the compressor kicks on,100psi means nothing while the compressor is off.
