2007 VUE Green Line
Default 07 GL AC compressor clutch

I have had my 07GL for about 5 years now, and have had to have the AC compressor replaced twice. Both times it's been because the clutch plate on the compressor flew off and was lost to the road somewhere. Apparently in this model, the clutch plate is pressed on instead of bolted so it fails rather spectacularly.

I am wondering if anyone else has had this same issue. When I took it in the first time the mechanic said they had seen 3 that month with the same problem, but the second time I had it replaced they hadn't heard of it. Thank goodness the part had a lifetime warranty the second time, because I saw the bill and it was over $900.

Thanks!

Kate
