The compressor is making a clink-clink sound that’s even more noticeable when the compressor is disengaged and the pulley is just free wheeling. You can hear it even better with the belt removed and the motor turned off by just spinning the pulley by hand. It should spin easily and it may be obvious that the pulley bearing is worn.
An AC repair shop would like to replace the entire compressor, including the clutch. This will be expensive because between the cost of the new/rebuilt compressor, the labor to remove the old compressor and install the new, and the cost of recharging the system with new refrigerant you would probably pay between $500 and $1000. Additionally, you would likely have to replace the receiver/dryer because the system has now been opened and exposed to the air and humidity. But the only thing causing the noise is a bad pulley bearing, which really ought to be repaired because if it lets go the belt(s) may cause havoc in the engine compartment.
If your clutch plate cover has three holes arranged in a triangular pattern, the tool is used to hold it in place and keep it from turning while you remove the center bolt holding the clutch to the compressor shaft. That center bolt is not torqued down particularly tightly, or is it set with locktite, so it doesn’t come out with a struggle. With the bolt out you can pry the clutch from the compressor. Beware of any spacers and shims falling out as you remove it. Note that you are doing all this while the compressor is still on the car if you can gain access to the front of the clutch/compressor so no gas is lost.Read more ›
Well constructed, when compared to the similar offerings from my local hardware store (which sells it for over $15)
The three points are adjustable. Some older clutch design, for example my wife's mustang does not have holes for the pin to stick in to, but instead I just adjusted the pin to grab on 3 bumps that's sticking out from the outer clutch plate, and it worked well as well.
