My friend said similiar thing, the whole unit, installed i think somewhere around $500.
? for you, do you notice a slight rattle when you accelerate also?
I changed my belt, because it was sqeeling terribly, so that went away, but when I turn the ac on (only ac, not heat) it sqeals for a sec bad and goes away. Then will randomly squal while driving. (Embarrasing!) So, my friend said the ac clutch looks rusted etc which is where we have it narrowed down to. And cant find just the pulley only the unit w clutch
Just dont wanna spend the $ on that and have the same thing happening. THinking of doing the ac compressor and belt tensioner. Dont mean to highjack, just curious cause problem sounds pretty similiar.
You also said: "would also recommend putting a new let" did you mean belt?
Thanks for any info.

So I found new a/c compressors complete assembly's for around 225-325 which IMO is worth it to go that route an also less troublesome... Depending on your budget could also vary that...I would also recommend putting a new let on while your at and keep the old as a spare I've done that on all my jeeps and its saved me many times.....hope this helps you and good luck!
