The first thing you need to do is make sure you can purchase a new AC clutch assembly for your compressor . If you can , then all you will need is the special tool required to remove the old clutch face and install a new one . One is the clutch face removing tool and the other is the installing tool . Also , there should be a nut you'll have to remove before using the tools . A deep well socket will be required to remove it from the compressor shaft . Also the clutch face has a woodruff key which must be reinstalled with the new clutch face .

My 2010 chevy malibu ac won't work, the fuse blows when I turn it on but nothing is grounded out could it be a bad compressor causing this?


If the fuse blows, unplug the compressor wire to the clutch and replace the fuse and try again. If the fuse doesn't blow, the compressor is the problem. If the fuse blows suspect a direct short in the wiring from the relay to the compressor

Fuse keeps blowing on a/c on 2001 dodge truck


Let's break this down.
1 Does the fuse blow when the heater is on, or just the AC?
Yes- Fan motor problem likely need new blower motor.
No- 2
2 Disconnect the AC compressor clutch wire. Remove the blown AC fuse, connect a multimeter across the sockets for the fuse, measure DC voltage across the two sockets with the AC switch, and Ignition switch ON. Is Battery voltage present?
Yes- The wiring harness has a short between the output of the AC switch and ground, likely a pinched harness.
No- The AC compressor clutch is shorted. Replace either the whole compressor or the clutch.

Need to find the ac relay switch to make the clutch run


If the clutch is not on, you REALLY do not want to force it to engage. The system moves lubricant with the refrigerant, and if low, you risk serious damage to the compressor. Have a qualified shop investigate the issue.

When the ac is off on malibu 1998 it make loud noise someone told me it is the compressor or it is the clutch? i can see metal powder around the compressor clutch


They are correct, it is the compressor. It is possible it is the clutch or it could be coming from a bearing and will most likely have to be replaced. If it only does it when it is off then it is most likely the clutch.

AC Compressor clutch problem


Hi

This could be any number of things, low system pressure, chattering relay, faulty cycling switch, failed compressor, poor cooling, the list goes on.

I'm afraid this is a job for the professionals!

Very best regards
