A/C compressor clutch on my 1994 3.1 L Grand AM

My A/C compressor clutch on my 1994 3.1 L Grand AM is making a noise. The A/C systems works fine but the clutch makes a scraping noise when the A/C is off. Do I have to replace the compressor or can I just replace the clutch?

You could just do the clutch ,but it could be something else and not the compressor making noise.

2005 Dodge GCAC Compressor going out and making a ton of noise.

The noise you are hearing is the clutch bearings going out on a/c compressor. The problem with removing the belt is that you will have to find a shorter belt for van and be able to reroute the belt in a way to make everything work. It's not likely to work the way each pulley has to rotate, some clockwise and counter clockwise. All the pulleys rotate in a different direction. If you continue to run the van like this what will happen is the clutch will either lock-up or come apart causing the belt to either come off or burn up. Hope this will help you.

98 grand am grinding/ A/C Compressor???

hi yes it sounds like the clutch or the bearing the job is not bad to do if you just do the clutch you will not loose any freeon if you replace the compressor you will need to have it recharged. as for used there is usuraly no gurantee that it will work.your best bet is to go with a rebuilt or new. you will have to replace the compressor oil and freeon.
