Hi,

I have a noise coming from the air con, i thought it may have needed just a regass but had this done yesterday and the noisy is still there, any ideas ??? It goes when you turn off the air con so i'm thinking pulley or tensioner, problem is i'm not that familiar with the set up. The system had no leaks and it works perfectly well but the noise is doing my head in!!

i was wondering if the aircon has a independent tensioner ?? i'm hoping the compressor pulley bearing isn't shot!! can you get these repaired ??

If anyone can shed some insight i'd be glad

Dave

Dave,

Not sure of your model year, however, in my 02C4S these is only one tensioner on the single serpentine belt. The compressor pulley is constantly turning and the internal clutch engages on the compressor when the AC is turned "on". Therefore, there may be a problem with the compressor clutch ( they apprently wear out over time and then you can get a metal-to-metal type of sound.

I do not believe the clutch on the compressor is replaceable. Checked Pelican parts and new OEM compressor is part no. 996-126-011-BX-M11 and is listed as $467.

Good luck!!

Demosan :cheers:
