AC Compressor Field Coil replacement question

12226 Views 9 Replies 7 Participants Last post by  zeppdogg
Problem with the AC not working. The clutch was not engaging. Hoping it was the thermal protector I removed everything to get to the top of the compressor. Checked the thermal protector and it is good. Checked the field resistance and it was 0. Looks like an open coil. My question is can the coil be replaced with taking out the compressor? It almost looks like I can get to the compressor from the side fender well. But, I'm not sure if I take the compressor loose that I'll be able to turn it enough to get to the front of the clutch.

Anyone know if you can replace the AC field coil with the compressor in the car?

Any updates on this?
I am in the same boat, I am going to attempt to replace my ac pulley/clutch/coil with compressor attached to the car. I am having a hell of a time removing the pulley from a spare compressor I have, even with the snap ring removed. Anyone else experience this? Seeking a solution to move forward with this.
Did u get it all done Mike ?
Yes thanks for your help
I ended up pulling the whole compressor because I shattered the field coil while trying to remove it.
