A/C Compressor Part Question

Poking around under the hood, actually the hood is off so the poking is much easier especially when your 6'2" like me, I noticed the thing on the front of my A/C compressor looks broken to me. I know squat about A/C but it works on y truck and blows cold. Can someone what this is , what it does, and if I need another where I can source it from. Oh yea, it looks like there are three little bolts holding it on and will be easy to remove, or am I dreaming ?

Re: A/C Compressor Part Question

Thanks Jim, Looks like more than one part involved. Do you know if the freon empties when you change it ?

Re: A/C Compressor Part Question

No loss of refrigerant but it takes special tools to get the clutch and pulley off.

Re: A/C Compressor Part Question

I just did the ac clutch on my truck. I rented the puller/installer set from auto zone. and you'll need snap ring pliers too. not very hard to change.

Read up in the factory overhaul manual and the factory chassis service manual.

Thumbs up Re: A/C Compressor Part Question

The seal behind the nut up inside the compressor is bad to leak. If there is any signs of leaking it's more than likely the seal. Pretty much need the handle that has three lugs to hold the clutch while you take the nut loose then a puller to get the old clutch off.
Do a A6 compressor search it will show you all you need.

Get out and drive the truck this summer and have some fun!
It sucks not being able to hear!

LWB trucks rule, if you don't think so measure your SWB!
After talking to tech support at Air Lift I have found out that the kit I need is 60811. Per the measurements I gave them. Ride height of truck inside spring and inside diameter of springs.
