Re: a.c clutch

Clutch can be changed separately.
Just found one on Rockauto.com, $ 215,00
They sell complete compressors with clutch for less overthere as well, DENSO, OE supplier, for $ 205,00.

Re: a.c clutch

lol, If you didnt have bad luck you would have no luck, sorry buddy... As stated, seems the last compressor clutch I looked into for my brothers neon it was like 20 bucks more for a reman compressor. Yeah you have to deal with evac and recharge too unlike swapping the clutch but its up to you.

I'm aware of all what needs to e done. its cheaper to do clutch. then u don't need receiver dryer,orafic tube,o rings, and freon. and reman clutch is more durable as its not rubber like the one I have

Re: a.c clutch

im aware of that, just saying that list of parts you mentioned sounds like the kinda stuff the dealer wants to change every time they open a system and in my opinion isnt always needed. glad you were able to fix it cheaply

I would agree with this statement... Unless you have an internal failure of the compressor filling the system up with crap, an external failure doesnt peticularly mean the other items require replacement. The reciever drier and expansion valve (this is not an orifice tube system) are not a bad idea to replace while you have the system apart, but not vital without an internal failure.

With a compressor failure or the system having been left open for a period of time (say a large hole where a condensor took a big rock), if your just replacing a failed clutch (or a compressor due to a failing clutch) The other stuff is just additional, extra money.

I will say, typically to maintain a warranty on a new compressor the reciever drier (or accumulator on an orifice tube system) must be replaced no matter the reason for replacement.
