First off, whenever I ask or answer a question on this group, I do a
search to see if it has been answered before or has been answered
better than the answer I might give. For some reason, on any browser
I'm using I'm not getting more than one return on ANY question I ask.
Has something changed?
Meanwhile, the belt on my air conditioner has failed on my 1984 300SD.
Usually not huge problem. The trouble this time is the departing belt
took the electrical connector to the clutch with it--a blue plastic
affair. I can see the other part of the connector behind the clutch
pulley. So, how do I remove the clutch pulley without removing the
compressor to access the wiring and see if I can fix it? My repair
manual takes the litigiously prudent route and tells me to take it to
a shop. Since I just recharged the thing, paying someone to discharge
it to remove it seems silly. Or is it?
Any help on the search and the pulley removal would be appreciated.
