yeterday I thew the belt off ....it was needing replaced bad...parts of
it got wrapped in air-cond. clutch...I removed it but now it seems its
slipping....air isnt cool as normal.....worked great before the belt
broke...can you replace clutch without removing compresser...can you
even buy just clutch...whats the trick if any to remove
Yes, it an be done. You'd have to unbolt the compressor from the mount, but
it can remain in the vehicle, and the system can remain charged. You need a
couple of special tools to do the job, however. Your best bet if you're
going to do it yourself is to obtain a factory service manual.
Before you throw the baby out with the bathwater, check to be sure the
clutch electrical cable is still plugged in to the clutch assembly and
check to see that you possibly didn't break one of the wires. Does the
clutch still engage and/or disengage when operating the A/C?
If the belt was as bad as you say I'm surprised it wasn't screeching like
a banshee long (months) before it broke.
