2006 ION-2 Quad Coupe
Default 06 2.2 A/C Compressor pulley/clutch replacement

The A/C compressor pulley bearings are shot on my 06 2.2 Ion. A/C is working. I've changed A/C compressor pulley/clutch assemblies on other cars, but on the Ion there doesn't seem to be enough room. Has anyone done this without removing the compressor?

It is tight, but more than one person has done it.

Thanks! I got as far as getting the clutch plate off, and the pully snap ring. I'll have to try the trick from the first thread about bringing the compressor up to the airbox shelf, that would make thinks a lot easier. working through the small open area the second post mentioned is a real pain.

Finished today! box1993's post really helped, I basically had to completely remove the condenser from it's mounts to be able to swing the compressor up to the airbox shelf. I was able to wiggle the old pulley off by hand, and the new pulley slipped right on.

thanks again for the help!

What PAG oil do these A/C compressors use?

The A/C system requires 5 ounces of PAG 46.
