How to fix a squealing AC compressor clutch pulley on a Dodge Ram, part I
This video shows part I of how I diagnosed and replaced the AC compressor
clutch pulley bearing from the air conditioning compressor on a 5.9L 1998
Dodge Ram 4X4. The repair was accomplished on the vehicle, allowing it to
be done without evacuating freon from the system. Incidental repair of an
antifreeze leak at the engine cooling system thermostat and heater hose was
Note that often when an AC clutch pulley bearing fails, the underlying
compressor is also failing. So, many professionals recommend replacing the
compressor, receiver dryer, and flushing the AC system when the pulley
bearing fails. I did not find enough evidence of compressor failure to
justify that extra cost, but time will tell whether this less extensive
repair is durable.
The AC compressor involved was a Sanden 4692, roughly equivalent to the
Sanden model SD 7H15. Although I initially planned to replace the pulley,
clutch plate, coil, and bearing, I had difficulty finding parts to match my
system, so I replaced only the pulley bearing. Overall cost was less than
$50 and a few hours of labour.

For a good review, showing how to disassemble Sanden compressor clutches on
the bench, see the video by Nostalgic air parts, as follows.
I purchased the bearing online from AC parts warehouse, address shown in
the video at 9:25. They were very helpful.

special risks, including the risk of violating international law if freon
is released into the atmosphere without reclaiming it. Do not try this at
home. Any misadventure you encounter if you attempt to repair your vehicle
is your responsibility.

DIY Auto: Intermittant A/C. Compressor clutch diagnosis on a 1990 Jeep Cherokee.
This apparently is a common problem with these A/C compressors. Symptoms
are A/C works when things are cold. When things warm up, the clutch fails
to engage. I've had this jeep for most of its life and this has always been
a problem. In the early stages, turning the engine off/on would get it to
work. Then moving the dash control to vent and back would get things going.
Now, a mallet to the compressor housing engages the clutch but only
briefly. Not a solution but proof of where the problem lies.
I by no means am a professional mechanic but I thought by making this video
it would assist other non-professionals help diagnose their intermittent
A/C cooling problem.

The AC compressor clutch is an electromagnetic device that engages the air
conditioning compressor. This unit is composed of three parts, the clutch
plate, the hub and the coil. The clutch coil is the one that creates an
electromagnetic field around it, which attracts the plate and engages the
clutch. The plate is also linked to the drive or serpentine belt and is
driven by the crankshaft. The hub and the plate have to be calibrated to a
specific gap using a feeler gauge.
The purpose of this video is to illustrate how almost all AC compressor
clutches are wires. The actual wiring may contain other components, such as
transistors and IC computer chips, but the control itself is the same. In
all cases, these extra components are used to control the relay coil, which
in itself controls the AC compressor clutch. This simple circuit can also
be used to wire an older vehicle due to lack of parts and high costs.
Here is how this circuit works.
This circuit has one relay, a refrigerant pressure switch, and a micro
switch. The micro switch is a W O T or wide open throttle switch used to
disengage the compressor clutch during wide open throttle conditions. This
is done to protect the compressor from damage at high engine speeds.
Electrical current flows from the 12 volt power feed to the fuse. Then
current flows to terminal... Get the whole story right here in this

2001 Jeep Cherokee XJ A/C Clutch and Shim Removal
How to remove the clutch off a Sanden air conditioning compressor on a 2001
Jeep Cherokee / Chrysler Vehicles. I believe this is the same compressor
that is on many Jeep Liberty KJ's and lots of other Chrysler vehicles.
Process should be similar on many other vehicles as many use Sanden
compressors of this style. Hope this vid helps you out a bit. This is a
super easy job and may get your A/C back up without spending any money.
