A/C Clutch for my truck

Last year A/C clutch seized(sp?) and with a little help of my friends, we bypassed the clutch and put the belt in place.

Now, i'm a fan of summer and I didn't bother fixing it yet, but it's kinda getting hot in the area these days.

I did a little google search, but it looks like i can't find a clutch only, and have to buy a compressor.

Is that right?
And if yes, can somebody tell me how many hours of work it is to replace compressor (i know the stuff needs to be emptied) opposed to replacing just the clutch on the compressor.

Thank you,

t.

2002 RAM 1500 V8 4.7 (smaller of the two V8)

thanks for replies.

"talk to ryan" tells me nothing though. who is ryan and where does he live.
i have a guy who is willing to come and fix the thing with a reasonable hour rate, thus my question how long does this take in general.

so, who is ryan?

thanks!!

damn! he must be running on european oil then

Ryan is Ryan on CLSB. You'd have to drive down to Justice though so since you have someone actually coming to your place to fix it for you I doubt you'd drive all the way to Justice. Replacing a compressor can pay anywhere from 1.5 hours to 6+ depending on difficulty level. Call some random shop up and ask them how many hours they charge to replace the compressor for your truck model specifically. They will probably separate the time to replace the compressor as well as vacuum then recharge your system. They will also charge you for the freon per pound. I really hope this guy coming to your place has an a/c evac. unit because if he doesn't then he'll be hacking your new compressor AND entire system to shit. Oh and make sure he adds the proper amount of oil back in to the system when he recharges as well. Also if you've had a decent leak in your system then chances are your drier is shot as well so you'll have to replace that as well. A/C is fun! Especially when you release freon in to the atmosphere because you don't have the proper equipment. Looks kinda like NOS primers

You can usually get a remanufactured unit for less than just a brand new clutch. But they will most likely need your broken compressor as a core in return. Don't worry, you're not wasting because it will be reused

There is no leak and never was. the clutch just stopped turning and was kind of burned together. jason would know how to explain it better.

given i'm in woodstock, justice is just not an option :|

the guy said he's got all needed stuff to do the compressor change if needed, but from what i understand, if clutch is the only thing that needs to be replaced, there is no need to open the system.

maybe i'll just suck it up and enjoy the heat

the center bearing on the clutch pulley seized up last year around this time if i remember correctly.

she nursed it along for a few hundred more miles before it finally locked up tight and wouldnt even let the engine start due to resistance on the belt, that nuked the belt stranding her at blackhawk
we dismantled the clutch the hard way...with a prybar... and bought 2 new belts trying to find one that would fit while bypassing the AC... there is no proper size belt so a short one was pulled to fit after much cursing and bloodied knuckles, this was a very short term limp home fix (i seem to be good at these limp home fixes that last a lot longer than expected right steve hahahaha)

anyways her compressor was last known in good working order but the electric clutch grenaded

there is a bypass pulley kit for the truck but that doesnt really solve the problem of you wanting a/c

i just checked all the normal places and yeah, youre going to have to get a whole compressor. you might want to check with the dealer to see if they have just a clutch available, could offset the cost of paying somebody the labor to r&r the compressor and evac/refill the system
