A/C Compressor

ok so my a/c compressor is seizing and my belt stops moving and so on. probably just the magnetic clutch. anyone got any ideas how to free it instead of me buying a new one? thanks

well i don't think you can clean it...best thing is to replace the whole thing because no matter what you do to it...in a couple of days the noise will come back

If the clutch was worn out then the ac pulley would just spin freely it would not get stuck. More than likely it could be a lack of lubricating oil inside the compressor and its overheating inside and seizing up.

I think this might be common on 99-00 cause I hear a lot of them driving by with that squeaky belt sound. I had my AC pulley replaced, when I looked at it the bearings inside were seized.

well when i hit the AC button it spins and stops and spins so on so on, once i have it off its like.. perfect and nothing wrong, so im just assuming its my compressor seizing and preventing the pulley to spin sometimes. ill update everyone later on since im gonna tackle this job ryu style

If its engaging the A/C compressor and then when it goes to release and its not then I would look at the coil inside the compressor being the issue or a connector causing it to not completely release.
