    The a/c works but when you turn it on the compressor makes a grinding noise. Could that just be the clutch since it’s working?

Does the 2003 kia sedonas ac compressor have the pulley attacted or can it be purchased separately?

The pulley which is called the clutch asm is sperate and can be removed and replaced without the compressor being replaced but i have found that just about ever car or truck that i try to replace the clutch instead of the whole compressor i found the clutch alone will cost as much if not more than the complete unit, i have also found that the most common reason for a compressor clutch or pulley going bad is due to the compressor itself being bad. good day,

My compressor is bad and i was wanting to bypass the compressor with a smaller belt, what size belt do i need to get

There's probably no way to find a serpentine belt to by-pass the A/C compressor. However, the compressor only spins when the compressor clutch is engaged, and if you unplug the clutch the compressor pulley spins freely on its bearing without turning the compressor. The clutch wiring connector is usually on the compressor near the pulley.

2005 Pontiac Sunfire A/C compressor always on when switch is pressed, never cycles on and off and even runs with temp control in full hot... any help? I was wondering if the compressor or pressure switch...

How do you know the AC compressor is always on?
It is always supposed to spin you know.
It is just that there is a clutch that lets the pulley freewheel on the shaft, and the compressor does not then spin even though the pulley is spinning.
But if you were very low on freon, it would also engage the clutch all the time as well. You need to put a gauge on the high side of the pump.

92 Ford F-150 a/c clutch pulley removal

i would suggest that you replace the entire ac compressor if you have never installed a compressor clutch before.

there is a fragile ceramic seal behind the ac clutch pulley, and if you crack it you will have to replace the ac compressor anyway.
