I will have to do it on weekend (I have to replace clutch coil) so I will let you know how it goes.Anyone changed the pulley and/or bearing on the a/c compressor?
Let me know!I will have to do it on weekend (I have to replace clutch coil) so I will let you know how it goes.
My plan is to lower the ac compressor without disconnecting it from the ac lines. Looks like no special tools are needed except snap ring pliers.
I had a burning rubber smell after which my ac stopped blowing cold air. AC switch lights up but ac clutch never wanted to engage. Then I disconnected compressor connector and tried to jump it with 12 volts straight to battery and clutch still did not engage. Then I measured resistance on the compressor side of the connector and it was open. Also voltage to ac compressor with ac on key on and engine off was about 4.5V. Ordered new clutch coil for 25.77$+11$ shipping, I also ordered new FCMLet me know!
What symptoms was your car having that led you to your diagnosis?
How did you pull? What tool?Make sure you only pull on the inner clutch, I was pulling the whole thing off like an idiot when I was rebuliding mine and I broke one of the flanges off and ruined the compressor. So yea dont do that it is an expensive lesson to learn.
Where did you order the parts?
I'm an electrical novice. Can you walk me through how I should test mine with a multimeter?http://www.thechillman.com/servlet/the-468/Jetta-City-AC-Compressor/Detail
I only needed clutch coil since mine was open and it should be in 3-4 ohm range.
