2000 Air Conditioner Clutch Help needed
Some may know me from the classic section.
I do know how to do some wrenching but I have a problem.
The problem is on our son's 2000 6 cyl Mustang.
The air conditioned clutch is screaming on start up.
A loud squeal for about a minute and then it is OK.
I just replaced the belt as it was the original.
I noticed that the front of the clutch has like a rusty stain.
I sprayed W-D-49 and it quieted it down for a few days.
I was afraid to continue this as I think it will mess up the
traction of the conditioner clutch.
The air works great but the noise is brutal when first starting.
Can I take apart the nose of the conditioner?
As an old timer, I have only had 3 cars with Air so I never worked on them.
I can follow directions pretty well.
So my questions are:
1. - Is there a simpe fix like dissasembly and clean
2. - Do I need to replace the clutch assembly
3. - Can I purchase just theconditioner clutch assembly?
Thanks from the "old guy"
