AC compressor question

Post by Ray » Fri Mar 14, 2014 4:43 am

The AC compressor on my 94 3000GT has suddenly become noisy. I assume it is the clutch, but I don't know much about AC repair.

A couple of questions:
Is it possible/practical to replace just the clutch?
If not, does anyone have a good used compressor unit that they would like to sell?

Any advice would be appreciated.

I am not sure if just the clutch is replaceable, I am parting out a car and I do have an a/c compressor that I am assuming is good (system does not have freon), that I could sell and if it worked charged you for it.

However, if the A/C ate it, traditionally you want to replace the condenser, orifice tube, and accumulator.
