Ac compressor question?

Hey guys/gals got this question? My ac compressor squeals and squals or whatever. I was woundering what I can do about that without opening the system? Is it like clutches that can be changed?

Sounds like the clutch bearings are bad. I don't know if you can just replace the clutch without getting a new compressor.

Here is the shop manual RnR for the idle pulley and clutch coil. The coil is likely OK.

This can all be done on the car, it's just that the working quarters can be a bit tight. You may have to pull the radiator if the coil needs to be removed with a puller.

Clutch is easy to Do, just make sure you use the correct shims , if not it will burn the clutch up again.

+1, if you need additional shims to get it right go by any auto AC shop, they will usually give you a few of assorted sizes for free...
