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:

AC CLUTCH


Not without proper specialized tools. Also will have to have your a/c system checked for leaks and refilled. It would be alot easier to just replace the whole compressor.

Hi. I have a 2003 Ford Taurus that has a problem with the AC Clutch. There was a pretty nasty noise coming from my AC compressor, even when I wasn't using the AC. I took it in and the mechanic seemed


Yes in most of these instenses you can replace just the clutch assy. advance auto parts does offer it sepperatly. and they wont have to even open any lines. it just requires a special puller kit.

The air condition wont turn on. The windows dont work, and the spedometer doesnt work


This just happened to me yesterday. First, push the AC button to turn the AC off. Then, find the fuse pannel on the driver's side under the dash. Mine is behind the ash tray. Replace the 10 amp fuse (marked fuse #18 on my 1995 Camry manual) and the windows, spedo, tach, etc will come back on. My problem is the bearings on my AC clutch heated up a plastic piece between the AC clutch and AC compressor and the plastic piece blew up and sprayed hot plastic all around the AC compressor. The car runs, but no AC and if I push the AC button, the fuse blows again. I am planning to unbolt the compressor from the engine block, and replace the clutch assembly and pully without disconnecting the hoses. Disconnecting the hoses will vent coolant to the atmosphere and require professional equipment to clean the oil from the system, pull a vaccuum and recharge the system. The AC compressor clutch assembly is available at Advanced Auto for $98. The whole compressor is $247 but requires a lot of work to recharge. You could also take the clutch assembly or whole compressor off and just leave it off and get a shorter (40" in my case) belt to go just to the alternator.
Good Luck.

A/c clutch not working. Is the clutch replaceable


Your clutch will not work if the 'fluid' level is low. This is designed to protect the compressor.
Was your air cold before it stopped?
You can buy a pressure gauge and new coolant at most stores for around $20. Make sure it's the right coolant.
The clutch CAN be changed without replacing the compressor.

Questions about ac pulley and belt?

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.

1998 crown victoria compressor doesent work


The clutch itself is the problem (and much cheaper)--replace only the clutch. You might check with a local wrecking yard for such a part. If the compressor was the problem, when the clutch engaged, the drive belt would either break or be thrown off.

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.

My compressor will kick on and off at random, air is ice cold too


Just change the clutch, its not that hard of a job. If you change the whole unit you will have to vacuum pump the whole thing down. And replace the freon. Just change the clutch. you might want to check the saftey switch that stops you from running with out freon.
