...on a 3.0L SHO?

Yeah, I was rompin' on it, and all I heard was *clunk* wirrrrrrrr *kerclunkathudunk* *ping* and watched something roll away from the car in the rearview.

<_<

Now what's left of the friction material (the hub is gone) is rubbin on the pulley, throwing friction material everywhere (and I just cleaned the fuggin' engine bay.
), and making a horrible noise. Obviously, this isn't a good thing.


So... how hard is it to replace the clutch and bearing with the compressor on the car still? I don't want to have to open the system, as we all know how much R-12 runs nowadays. Thanks all...

I have done several, on FWD cars they are a pain in the a**. You can rent a clutch puller from autozone which will make the job a lot easier. The whole clutch, pulley and field can come out without discharging the system.

When everything goes back on, just be sure to check the clutch air gap.
