Question about 1996 Chevrolet Corsica
I just recharged the air conditioner. Now the compressor clutch is making bad scraping sounds and leaving metal shavings when heater control is on, or when A/C is turned off. It works fine when the A/C is on. I'm afraid the compressor clutch needs to be replaced, but I can't figure out how to remove the compressor. I can't even figure out how to remove the splash shield. Taking it to a shop is not an option.
I am sorry your having problems with your compressor, If you replaced your compressor and you still have noise something is askew. Did you add oil? whenever you replace a a/c component you must add a specific type and quanitity of oil for that component. Also, in order to maintain a warranty for the new compressor one must replace the filter drier and maybe the metering device. Did you pull a vaccuum to remove moisture in the system? The reason you say it makes noise on the heat side is because when the selector is on defrost the compressor drops in and out to dehumidfy the air in the cab so the windows don't fog up. This is not a solution but gives one an idea what potential could be happening in the system.
