Just wondering if anyone knows how to get the clutch off the front of the air conditioner compressor? The car is a 96 EL Fairmont.

i have been their and done it to a eb ed,
take the belt off

you need to find something to fit in to the 3 holes to stop the clutch from turning, and undo the nut, then you need a pair of cir clip pliers and take the clip out from under the nut once done the clutch should slide off


i had to change a bearing in mine.

hope this helps.

Thanks for the reply!
Yeah i think the bearings need to be changed, its got a whiney noise in the air conditioner clutch which goes away when u switch the air conditioner on, Where did you get the new bearings from? Do you remember what they cost?

I completely rebuilt a Xf compressor, by removing the bearings and 'o' rings and taking them to a bearing and seal place. They matched them up for me. It was awhile ago but I remember the price was very reasonable, much cheaper than a new compressor.
