need tool ro remove a/c clutch.

Postby machinehead [OP] » June 30th 2014, 10:23pm

Hi all , i have a 02 Safari with a bad a/c compressor bearing.
Apperantly the compressor is a Denso with that wierd looking center piece., kind of looks like a crooked star.
Anyone know where i can find the clutch removal tool for this Denso comp.?
Comp. is ok . I put another belt and idler pully on it to bypass the compressor so it dosent get chewed up etc.
Any help is appreciated.

Not sure leeann as most tools i have seen ( including this one ) dont list a Denso as being compatible .?
I am no expert but it looks to me after much research that the Denso compressor might require a tool that is different from the usual ?
I am posting to find out if this is true and looking for the tool .

What model is your compressor?

The tool I linked to works on:

Use this set for damage-free removal and installation of the clutch hubs on these air conditioning compressors: GM-Harrison DA-6, HR-5, V-5, A-6 and early R4; Nippondenso Ford/Chrysler A590, C171, FS-6, 6P148A (new style); Sanden and Sankyo; York/Tecumseh HR980; Zexel/Mitsubishi CH series.

I ran into the same thing… Bought a puller kit, but couldn't get anything to fit the center nut inside the compressor….. luckily for me, what I thought was a gone clutch, was the compressor not turning on due to low refrigerant…
I too put in the idler pulley and bought a small belt ( which I now keep in the van as a spare ) .

I'd still like to remove the pulley and put the new one on that I bought, since the bearing does make a little noise, and it's the original compressor at 198K.

If you're talking about the clutch flex plate design, that shouldn't matter.

Here is what I used on mine:

Corsemoto wrote:Replaced worn out a/c clutch with the Compressor Works * 677802 * kit from Autozone and includes clutch, pulley, bearing and coil.

I used my new Robinair 41067 removal/install tool but had to rent a/c clutch pulley pulley 27001 from Autozone to remove pulley and modify my three jaw puller along with a part from the pulley tool to remove coil.

Installed new parts and set air gap on clutch to .025" and it's working great

FYI, the Compressor Works pulley is slightly oversize compared to oe pulley but didn't cause any issues.
