Question about 2007 Jeep Liberty Sport

1 Answer

Clutch on AC compressor is faulty. Repairman says repair must include entire new Jeep compressor assembly in order to get the clutch, even though compressor itself is working fine. Surely this isn't true.

Check with a local jobber and see if it can be ordered for your jeep.If so get an estimate on the labor first!
Some GM, like Geo Metro,no aftermarket clutch hub bearing available,had to order the clutch hub and field coil assy 140.00$
Cheaper than a new compressor assy. But if you dont do the labor it may be cheaper to replace the unit!

Keeps blowing fuse


Most likely the clutch on your ac compressor has stopped working or the entire compressor has seized. The blower will still work, but without the clutch working correctly int won't cool like it should. While possible to replace just the clutch on a compressor, it's generally better to replace the entire assembly.

Noise from ac compressor


That would depend on the problem and prices in your area.
You can call around and ask for the cost to replace the ac clutch and the compressor.
If the bearing in the clutch is the noise, the clutch can be replaced without replacing the entire compressor assembly.

Ac clutch squeals when i hit the gas no matter if ac is on or off but not at idle 98 jeep gc 5.9 need steps to replace clutch assembly


Are you certain that it's the clutch assembly?
Check the idler pulley. Poor tension in the idler pulley spring will cause the belt to squeal AT THE ALTERNATOR, and it may sound like it's coming from the AC.
The AC pulley typically "freewheels" when the AC is not on and the engine is running.
Have someone turn the AC on and off while the engine is running and watch the operation of the AC clutch. If it's working properly, the clutch should "click" and the back part of the pulley should start turning or try to turn.
If the squealing noise continues when the clutch is freewheeling, it's probably the idler pulley. If the AC Pulley won't start freewheeling, it's probably the clutch.
To remove the clutch system,
  • disengage the idler pulley and remove the serpentine belt from one of the pulleys.
  • rent, purchase or borrow a puller from a local auto parts retailer (Auto Zone and O'Reilly auto parts are both helpful)
  • some of the clutch systems have retaining bolts, some are just pressed in, figure out what you have before removing the clutch assembly using the puller.
  • The puller is also designed to help put the NEW clutch assembly back on the shaft.
The idler pulley assembly is a lot easier to replace.

I need a diagram on how to remove a ac compressor on a 1996 lincoln mark VII


There's not really a diagram for the actual removal and installation. A good repair manual might list steps like these: First, your system needs to be purged of the freon. Next, unplug the AC clutch/pulley assembly at the front of the compressor. Remove the belt, then the AC lines on the compressor (usually in the back), then unbolt the AC from any mounting bracket(s) and remove. To avoid having to press on and off the clutch/pulley assembly you might want to make sure you're buying a complete compressor assembly. Read and follow those directions concerning oil for the compressor. After installing the new AC, reconnect the lines with new "O" rings. Most if not all compressor manufacturers will not honor any warranty unless you change out your orifice tube (also called an expansion valve) and accumulator (aka the dryer) at the same time. Recharge the system with the appropriate amount and type of freon, most likely R-134a.

Can I replace the A/C clutch myself or do I need any special tools? Can I by pass this with a different belt?


bypassing the compressor is best to do. get a belt for your engine less the ac option. the removal and tear down of any compressor is not easy for a novice

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.

Rattling sound coming from air conditioning compressor


Check all compressor mountings are in good order and firmly attached.
You may have a faulty drive clutch assembly or a faulty compressor unit.
If it continues, you need to have the A/C serviced and checked.

BAD BEARINGS ON AC CLUTCH ON A 2000 DODGE DURANGO


Buy a whole new clutch for about $200. You need a special puller to remove the old one if you intend to refurbish it. It's not worth the effort. Just remove the clips and knock the old one off with a hammer. Chuck it away and replace with a brand new clutch assembly.

On a a/c, can you just change out the clutch part of it? or does the entire system (compressor/clutch) have to be replaced? if the clutch can be replaced, are there flying parts I should be aware of?


If you have the right tool, you can change the clutch without removing it from the system. However, check the prices. You can usually purchase a complete compressor clutch assembly for just a little more than the clutch by itself. Also you have to set the clutch just right or all you have done is a waste. better to put a whole new unit and recharge than have something that will not work right. The tool kit could cost as much as the compressor. I have one, but it does you no good. Unless you live near western NY.
