1990 a/c clutch removal

I have a 1990 Lebaron. I want to replace the a/c clutch because it squeaks. Possibly a bearing going bad. I already have a new clutch. Looking at it I feel I can do it myself, but I haven't found any books on how to remove it. Can you help?

You have to replace the hole compressor and you can get that off by removing two bolt on the bottom and it is easer to get to the bolts from under the car.

2004 nissan frontier 4x4,4wd light will not go out. what could this be?

With all the work you had done, I believe that the problem you are having is connected with a plug that was not reconnected, or possibly a bad connection. If the transmission was removed for a new clutch this would be the first thing I would look for. GOOD LUCK FRIEND.

  1. Remove the transmission or transaxle as outlined.
  2. Insert a pilot shaft or an old input shaft into the center of the clutch disc, pressure plate, and the pilot bearing in the crankshaft.
  3. With the pilot tool supporting the clutch disc, loosen the pressure plate bolts gradually and in a crisscross pattern.
  4. Remove the pressure plate and clutch disc.
  5. Clean the transmission and clutch housing. Clean the flywheel surface with a non-oil based solvent. Wash your hands before installing or handling the clutch assembly parts. Hold the clutch disc by the center hub only.

Before assembly, slide the clutch disc up and down on the transmission input shaft to check for any binding. Remove any rough spots with crocus cloth and then lightly coat the shaft with Lubriplate.
  1. To remove the throwout bearing assembly: Remove the return clip and take out the throwout bearing carrier and the bearing.
  2. To replace the throwout arm use a / 16 in. punch, knock out the throwout shaft spring pin and remove the shaft, springs, and the center lever.
  3. Do not immerse the throwout bearing in solvent; it is permanently lubricated. Blow and wipe it clean. Check the bearing for wear, deterioration, or burning. Replace the bearing if there is any question about its condition.
  4. Check the shafts, lever, and springs for wear and defects. Replace them if necessary.
  5. If you hadn't planned on replacing the clutch disc, examine it for the following before reusing it. Loose rivets. Burned facing. Oil or grease on the facing. Less than 0.3mm left between the rivet head and the top of the facing.
  6. Check the pressure plate and replace it if any of the following conditions exist: Scored or excessively worn. Bent or distorted diaphragm spring. Loose rivets.
  7. Insert the control lever into the clutch housing. Install the two return springs and the throwout shaft.
  8. Lock the shift lever to the shaft with the spring pin.
  9. Fill the shaft oil seal with multipurpose grease.
  10. Install the throwout bearing carrier and the bearing. Install the return clip.
  11. Grease the carrier groove and inner surface.
  12. Lightly grease the clutch disc splines.

The clutch is installed with the larger boss facing the transmission.
  1. Support the clutch disc and pressure plate with the pilot tool.
  2. Turn the pressure plate so that its balance mark aligns with the notch in the flywheel.
  3. Install the pressure plate-to-flywheel bolts head-tight. Using a torque wrench and, working in a crisscross pattern, tighten the bolts to 11-15 ft. lbs.
  4. Install the transmission or transaxle as outlined.
  5. Adjust the clutch as described in the following information.

Sometimes the A/C clutch pulley goes bad. It is a combination of a clutch and an Idler pulley. This means the part is always turning the bearing regardless of whether the A/C is on or off.

But you can try to change out the tensioner and idler to see if they help. Parts vary widely in price.

As for A/C pulley, some are removable without taking off the compressor. They have left-hand thread and a small clip. Require grinding out bearing assembly and punch pinning new part to hub. Often can be done in an hour by the ambitious.

Would think that roughness in bearing as you checked could be judged as good or bad.

When pressing in the clutch and releasing it there is a squeaking/whining noise that is being made. it shifts fine and i am not dropping out of gear, but I am worried about the noise. do you have any ideas...

start by spraying some WD-40 on the hinges of the clutch pedal. this will eliminate if the squeak is coming from the pedal and not the clutch. now assuming that it does not eliminate the squeak then here's the next thing.the throw-out bearing is beat. you can replace that on its own but if you are going to go through the trouble of replacing the bearing you might as well do the clutch too....

As soon as the car hits the mark of 60Kmiles, the owner has to make the decision. To keep it or get rid of it. If you decide to keep it, than prepare for more expensive tune Ups, or Preventive and Scheduled Maintenance Services. The squeaking noise means it is the time to replace the serpentine belt. It cost $30 and can be done by owner in 5 minutes, but from now you have to save some money, because between 60K and 90K the timing belt has to be replaced too with a new one. It is not the belt only, there is a kit with belt tensioners that cost $290 parts only.
For more information please read my tip:

Squeak is annoying the only parts not change yet is h2o pump ac bearing and p/s bearings dont know what to do

Remove the belt and turn the water pump, A/C clutch and power steering by hand in the direction they normally rotate. You may be able to feel a bad bearing. Does the sound change when you turn on the A/C or Defrost? That would point to the A/C clutch.

I assume you have already tried a new belt, and have cleaned all the pulleys to make sure there isn't something on them causing the belt to slip (then squeak when it catches again).

Sound like you've been told right. Either your pressure plate (the thing that hold the clutch disk firmly against the flywheel) or the throw out bearing is bad. Does it make any noise when you hold the clutch in?

Squeaking noise front drivers side of engine

Loosen the belts [ you do not need to remove] so they are free of tension to all pulleys.Start engine , if noise goes away either belts were too loose [ common on lx 450] or you have a worn & noisey pulley /bearing.have seen idler pulley below alternator have dry / noisey bearing.Otherwise if idler is ok it has to be another belt driven assessory , ac clutch,water pump & or fan clutch.Good Luck.
