2001 L300 A/C compressor question

Discussion in 'Saturn L-series' started by Joe's Newsgroup, May 25, 2010.

  1. Can I just change the clutch, without changing the compressor.

    The clutch is bad not the compressor.

    If so where can I purchase the puller tools and clutch,

    Thanks in advance

    Most cars have compressors that you can get replacement clutches for. As
    long as the gas pressure is still good (no leaks), it is worth changing the

    Last car I did this on was a Plymouth Voyager and the old compressor came
    off easily with an impact wrench on the central bolt. On assembly, I used
    blue (removable) thread locker and great care with the impact wrench. The
    L300 is a LOT tighter package and a royal pain to get at anything.

    Check with auto parts first to see if the clutch is available.
