You will need to recover 1st the freon in the vehicle , once that is done, you need to remove the drive belt to free up the AC pulley. once that is done, you will then need to remove the AC line manifold from the back of the AC Compressor. The AC manifold needs to be covered by a ZIP LOCK bag to not allow any moistutre in it. Remove bolts that hold down the AC Compressor and the electrical harness attacked to it.

What could be causing loud grinding noise when i switch on aircon? Aircon now not working but only makes loud sound.


Sounds like the bearing or part of the clutch in the A/C compressor has failed, or possibly component on a/c fouling on something due to recent repairs however would be unlikely and probably just a coincidence..

Check A/C compressor turns by hand, should be firm but not make any noises.

Check for fouling components related to a/c compressor clutch.

Ac compressor making loud noises and my instrument cluster all of a sudden quit working


Get out your owners manual and locate the power relay for the AC and remove it, this will stop the AC clutch from engaging the compressor, note, AC is used in winter to help remove moisture when defrost is on you may have to roll window down to prevent fogging, also check for blown fuse in manual bet you find one for instrument cluster, good luck,Bret

1993 cutlass a/c making loud noise


air compressor clutch bearing is failing - repair if too costly a rebuilt unit installed by yourself plus Pro - one in a can recharge of freon will be needed. If above not do able - remove main serpetine drive belt + measure and by trial and error acquire Shorter Belt to Fit everything without going around Air Conditioner pulley . Noise will be gone but no Air Cond. and this is cheapest route but getting right shorter belt Length is Time consuming .

A/C quit blowing cold air after a loud squeeling noise stopped!


Look way down on the engine front area passenger side for the compressor.
Is the belt gone?
Check the belt tensioner pulley....can you turn it?....is it seized?
If it is OK then try and turn the compressor.......and the idler part of the compressor.
If the compressor is seized.....why?
Usually lack of oil in the system,or an overcharged system.

Once you have removed the 134a gas from the A/C system before removing the compressor and before installing the new compressor make sure you add the correct amount and type of oil into the system to prevent another seized compressor after you have flushed the system to remove contaminates such as old compressor grindings......if the compressor was seized.
You will also need a new receiver/dryer once you open the system to the moisture in the air.
Do not expose the new receiver/dryer to air....install last.
Vacuum the system well before refilling with the correct amount of 134a.
At 70 to 80 degrees outside temp........a vent temp at medium fan speed of 48 to 45 degrees should be a full charge .......use this reading if you do not have a electronic scale and/or A/C machine.
DO NOT OVERFILL THE SYSTEM.

Loud buzzing noise


From the sounds of it, it's simply your air ride's compressor. If you're not aware that your vehicle has air ride suspension, read up on the user's manual or look on the web. When you start your vehicle and shift into drive or reverse, your compressor should start (assuming no doors are ajar). The compressor than fills all four airbags in your vehicle to a factory-set height. These airbags provide a softer ride than the conventional shock/strut system seen in less expensive SUV's and trucks but are also more prone to problems and damage down the line. You can isolate the compressor as the sound by going to your truck, removing the left hand side panel and switching your air ride off. Your car's compressor then should not kick in at all. However, you should not operate your vehicle with this switch turned off. You should only use it as a diagnostic reference or anytime your car is towed, hoisted, or jacked up. Hope this helps.

There is a loud noise coming from my engine ..sometimes..


oh ok, you probably have air shocks and that is the compressor running... makes sense that it sounds with the engine off... it should not be a loud sound though, normally it's quite quiet and you only hear a faint noise... if it is that loud it's probably a bad compressor
