1997 Dodge Ram A/C Clutch Noise


1997 Dodge 1500 Ram 5.2L.
Question: clutch on air conditioning pump heating up and makes noise like bearings. Can this be repaired or do i need a new pump.

 

Answer: The clutch can be replaced separately, with some special tool, but if it making a lot of noise, I would suggest replacing the compressor. You stand the risk of replacing the clutch only to find that it got so hot that it damaged the compressor bearing or seals, and then you would have to replace the compressor anyway.

    <br />After you remove the fan assembly, there should be bolts that hold the fan clutch on.
