2000 L-Series 3.0L Sedan
Default AC Clutch Question

Our 3.0L LS2 AC Clutch is bad. There is a 2.2L Saturn at a salvage yard and the AC Compressor is mine if I want it. Is the AC compressor clutch on the 2.2L different from the AC compressor clutch in our LS2 or are they identical?

Thanks
Rj

L300 uses a 6 groove belt and an L200 uses a 5 groove belt. The shoe and the coil will work just not the pulley. The compressor itself is the same.

I wish I knew the make and year. I did notice the pulley looked different. What you're saying is the actually clutch coil is identical? Is so, I had better go get that part! Thanks!

^^^ That explains why my new compressor had a note about the new pulley Possibly having an extra groove. In my case it did not. The pulley on my old 04 2.2 compressor matched the new pulley correctly.

Thanks for that information!

I have a 6 groove L300 compressor on my L200 with a 5 groove belt. Happy to help.

I got a close look at the 2.2L compressor clutch and it is a ONE Wire connection, not 2 wires like the L200. Our Saturn 3.0L has two wires connecting to the compressor clutch, therefore, I would contend that the 2.0L and 3.0L compressor clutches are not identical.

I believe that 02 LW300 is correct. If you look at the compressors and clutch parts at RockAuto.com then you find that all of the related components are the same except for the pulley. The power connector at each compressor clutch is a two wire type.

I was only commenting on factory installed compressors. The aftermarket replacements with the transfer pipe are anyones guess.
