I have a 2009 Honda Odyssey with working A/C…however the bearing in the pulley is bad and causes quite a scream when you start it up.
I want to buy a $50 clutch replacement kit to replace the pulley with that one. Is it worth it? No shop I’ve called is willing to do this repair. They want to drain the system and replace the compressor completely then refill the system. I’d rather save a couple hundred on my working compressor and just do this job. Am I nuts? Has anyone else done this repair and had success?
Edit: shops have quoted me between $800 and $1300 to do this. I’m not lazy, I just don’t like laying on the concrete when its 10 degrees outside.
