Howdy -

My car's been making an odd 'howling' sound for a while. This week it turned into a terrible clatter coming from the accessories. Traced it to the A/C pulley, thinking the bearing went south since the sound changes when the compressor clutch engages.

Searched for this, but couldn't find anything. How do I go about removing the A/C pulley and clutch from the compressor? I have the serpentine belt off, no problems. There was a single 8mm bolt in the center of the clutch that came out without a problem. I think using a longer bolt might push this pulley and clutch off, but not sure.

Almost forgot, the compressor spins fine and A/C works ok. The pulley has a ton of free play an feels like it has sand instead of bearings when I spin it by hand ;-]

Please help!

Thank you - Mike

OK, I firgurd out how to get the hub and pulley off. I replaced the bearing, which then burned up in about 15 miles...

I need to replace the whole assemblly. The clutch is dragging, which I think overheated the bearing in no time flat.

I've got it arapt, but can't really see how the electromagnet part is connected. Is it pressed on, do I need to use a puller?

ANY and ALL help appreciated, please!!

FOUND IT!!

This post was for an 01 Taurus, but I checked out the compressor pics on the Autozone site and they have the same 'big posts' on the backing plate / hub. They have the same mounting arrangement of the compressor, as well as the small bolt in the center of the hub. Different PN's, probably due to internal differences.

I used to work as a tech in the R&D lab at Park Hannifin test Thermal Expansion Valves for auto AC - many cars share the exact same compressors - visteon /denso are the two I really remember. Most times there are few differences except for maybe how the variable displacement is set up, for example (it it is a VD compressor).

I figured I'd repost it here, for anyone else that has a similar problem in the future. I'm 99.9% certain it's the same for my Focus - the instructions all match what I've done.

Removal of A/C clutch:

1. Remove the A/C compressor as noted above.

µ 2. Remove the A/C clutch hub retaining bolt.

1 Hold the A/C clutch hub with the special tool.

2 Remove the bolt.

µ 3. Remove the A/C clutch (2884) and the A/C clutch hub spacer (19D648).

1 Thread an 8 x 1.25 mm bolt into the A/C clutch to force it from the compressor shaft.

2 Lift the A/C clutch and the A/C clutch hub spacer from the compressor shaft.

µ 4. Remove the pulley snap ring.

µ 5. Remove the A/C clutch pulley (2E884).
