Cluch operatng shaft leaver chage vw

are you refering to the clutch fork that connects to the other end of the clutch cable, you will have to drop the gear box as this fork sits over the clutch pressure plate ,and pushes the thrust bearing against the pressure plate tynes so disengages the drive from engine to gearbox, while you've got the box out check the condition of the clutch parts ie thrust bearing,pressure plate spring's,friction plate condition

Found that the cluch bearing is making a wine should you replace the whole compressor or just the cluch bearing air conditioning works fine nice and cool except for high pitch wine

Usually the clutch can be replaced on those, but the bearings are too much to fix, by the time you pay for that repair you could have bought a new one, which is my recomendation. The alternative is a salvaged compressor. Thney are rarely why a car is put into the junkyard and usually work if installed correctly. Remember you have to vacuum down, and dehydrate a system that has been opened to the air before you can refill it.

Belt squeel caused by air coditioner cluch bearing how to change the cluch bearing and pullers/tools needed

I take it you have tried a new belt. The Air-conditioner belt driven clutch and bearing repair will cost you nearly as much as a re-conditoned unit. The time, effort and agony is just not worth the trouble of going through any clutch / bearing replacement attempt. (been there done that! And had the right tools!) Ended up replacing the compressor anyway as the internal rollers of the Compressor were the actual problem.

A/c compressor has a loose donut ring on the end of unit

You cant tieghten it up ,it has to be replaced or removed,the ring is part of the compresser clutch ,if you eliminate your a/c,just get a serpentine belt the same year car as yours but without air,but im pretty sure all corvettes have a/c could be wrong but i have had eight vets myself actually i have 87 now but ,what will happen is the compresser itself will eventually seize then you have bigger problems have you priced a clutch for your compresser,i dont think there all that exspensive,you dont have to change whole compresser ,Hope this helps

HI , my Ford Taurus is 1996 model

As far as compressor clutch slipping, that could indicate that your system needs a freon recharge.
As far as Code 1405 is concerned, the code guide i checked states it is an EGR valve problem having to do with the upstream pressure hose. Check hose for tight connections and there are no kinks in hose and check condition of hose and replace if necessary.
