cwillis Posted August 30, 2004 Report Share Posted August 30, 2004 First the A/C compressor fuse blew, then the bearing in the clutch pulley started making a rubbing noise, so using the Robinair clutch removal tool, I removed it and found that the bearing had begun to come apart. I noticed a looseness with the pulley after removing the belt, and there was a slight "plastic" burn smell. After pressing a new USA bearing back into the pulley hub, and putting it back on the compressor shaft, I noticed a slight binding while rotating the pulley. Suspecting the coil had overheated and shorted, I bought a new coil. Now the problem...how do I get the old coil off the compressor shaft? Do I need a special puller? It appears to be a pressed on coil, as I see no retaining clip or screws holding it in, and the clearance is small between the metal coil housing and the compressor. I am attaching a picture of the compressor with the old coil still on for clarity. Any help with this would be greatly appreciated!
