GM Air Conditioning Pump

6 posts in this topic

I have a 1998 Buick Le Sabre custom 3.8 the Air Cond pump clutch has failed the pump still works, but grinds when dis-engaged. Can I just replace the clutch, or do I have to replace the whole air conditioning pump? I would guess you still have to pull the pump to replace the clutch if you can replace it? Thanks

I didn't see a replacement compressor clutch on NAPA's online catalog but that does not mean they are not available. More often than not the compressors are changed rather than just the clutch. Mostly because the compressors are either leaking or will start leaking soon after!

Thanks AirJer! I knew you'd come thru for me. I will be replacing the pump and certainly will have some questions I'm sure....

If you replace the a/c compressor, you will need to suck the freon out of the car then you will need to refill it. You can get a do it yourself refill kit, but you may need to bring it to a shop to get the freon reclaimed.

Yeah I kinda figured that. I just gotta find a guy to reclaim the freon. I would really like to keep the cost down. I have to fix the pump(car) because the serpitine belt runs around it. This is my little girls car, and school starts tomorrow

Alot of shops will reclaim it for no charge, or a minimal fee.

    • From Wikipedia Nope, nothing to see here. We had nothing to do with it. No involvement at all. 
    • I did cut off the radish tops and they do taste like radish but I am not going to get in the business of growing them..
    • Nice overreaction. Did you have too much caffeine today?   Nobody said or implied that the world would be better off without the united States.    What I did say was the world would be better off if we were not destabilizing governments and taking out the leaders that kept these radicals in check.    Where do you think all the refugees that are heading to Europe and here are coming from? They are coming largely from areas where we deposed, removed or destabilized the government in their home country. Do you think this is some kind of coincidence?   
    • The Shah was there for a long time before the revolution, but yes we had a role in his getting the job.   I don't recall anyone saying that we had a role in the disintegration of Lebanon.   I think that was the peaceful Muslims trying to take the whole place, with input from outside forces.  Syria maybe? 
    • My granny would fricassee them.  Cut-up, season, braise in stock, remove, then add flour and butter to thicken the stock, season to taste, and return the pieces for a few minutes.  If we had a few quail or dove she would add them in as well.  HERE is a really good looking rabbit fricassee with mushrooms, wine and herbs served over pasta.  Would like to try this with chicken drumsticks or wings.
    •   Ding, ding ding, ding! We have a winner. I sensed this was were this thread was heading   It's all America's fault and the world would be a much more peaceful place if America never existed. Why, these people would be the salt of the Earth if it wasn't for the mean and bad USA and throw in Israel in that   "America's Chickenzzz....are coming to home to roost!"   The common denominator is Radicalized Islam. You may not like hearing that but that is the common denominator including in other parts of the world were Radical Muslims cannot seem to get along with their own neighbors including others in their religion that aren't radical enough that have zilch, zero, zip, nada to do with the USA.   No other religion or belief system, I don't care if it's Christianity, Scientology, Paganism, Agnostics, Atheists,ect, has the issues with violence in modern times as Islam does. Spin it anyway you want but the facts cannot be denied.   This massive denial by some of what's sadly and painfully obvious is mind boggling. I get the desire to seem enlightened and non judgemental but that doesn't mean one should deny reality and blame  Fox or Briebart
