I went through a similar situation on my moms' '95 Sable, and I still don't know much about a/c systems. I know they sell compressor pulley removal tools at most parts stores, so you may want to grab that. There is most likely a set of generic instructions that will come in the package, showing you how to use the tool. This is a good opportunity to ask some guys working the counter about how it works. I ended up changing the entire compressor, avoiding that step.Originally posted by reever@May 7 2004, 07:23 PM
Ok folks, what is the correct procedure to get the pulley off of the compressor without removing said compresor, and dumping refrigerant?
Any and all comments are appreciated
If you need to change the compressor pulley because it seized, or was grinding, be advised that metal shavings will end up inside your compressor and receiver dryer. Installing a new compressor pulley will still render your a/c system as basically unreliable. Or so I've heard. <_<
