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.

    • Have not been around here much but always enjoy the "Turkey Talk" Count me in. Hunting Minnesota and Wisconsin. Archery for both.  
    • I put my feeders out 1st of May usually. Such a neat bird. We usually only have a few so they are territorial here. Fun to watch one guard a feeder and then zip down when another one comes. Maybe they get along in bigger numbers?   Up north at daughters inlaws on a lake the neighbors have 4 feeders under a big pine and usually a bunch of hummers. Saw about 15 one time and they got along fine. Pretty neat. 
    •   So that's the evidence you have about illegal wiretaps that apparently nobody else has besides Trump?  That Obama's a bad (or sick) guy?   Try harder.   
    • Yup, everytime i call you or del out to put up the truth about your own bodies, you dodge. Wouldn't that be the ultimate proof that your way of addressing personal health and wellness is more effective in preventing and healing?  I think you guys have an idea from what you've been told and not what you bring yourself to learn and you never put anything to use so, who are you really to share your opinion? A couple of blowhards, thats who.
    • What crankbaits do you like for the 7-9ft range?   Looking for something that casts/have action like a DT-10, but doesn't run quite as deep. I have some SK series 4, but they have the wider wobble which sometimes I don't want. The SK series 3's just don't cast that far, especially in a wind. Same with some others, they always seem to be smaller in this range.   Thanks. 
    •     Ok, I think I need to clarify my statement. My belief is they would be better off in letting ObamaCare collapse on it's own than passing "Obamacare part 2." My first choice would be to just repeal it. Then I suppose a debate can happen  
    •   Ryan's bill is a direct taxpayer subsidy to the healthcare industry, via the insurance companies.  I think we have enough experience with subsidies to know that the outcome generally isn't good with that.   Probably the best thing to do is just repeal the ACA, and hand it back to the healthcare industry.  But that isn't likely to happen because there is just too much money involved.   Like any other slippery slope, the sledding is pretty good going downhill - not so easy going back up...
