My AC pulley is screaming and wanted to see if anyone here has done this repair ? Do I need to replace the entire unit or can I just replace the bearing ? Any help would be great (links too)
I don't know if this is the same one on my 2001 S-10 or not but if so they do make the pully assembly. Might be the same as the one I replaced on my 1994 Caprice. Way too much work to just replace a pully. If I remember correctly you need a special tool to remove it. (I think I had a friend that had one)
(Call around, very few places will replace them). It's not worth their effort. They simply tell you that you need a new unit.
I guess that doesn't help that much. LOL
Just replaced the whole unit with a reman. Cost around 230.00 including a sensor that wouldn't come out and a few cups of coffee. My buddy had some extra freon so he charged the system too. Came out nice. Would recommend doing it like this as compared to just doing the pulley.
