GM A6 Compressor Clutch Coil Question

Refrigerant Type: R134a
Country of Origin: United States

Hi, I have a GM A6 Compressor with the Clutch Coil orientation plug on the wrong side. I need to rotate the clutch coil plug from the 2 o'clock position to the 10 o'clock position when looking from the front to aft.

How do I go about doing that?

With the proper tools you can do it-- a clutch puller to remove the clutch- then a pulley puller- or a three jawed gear puller to remove the pulley- and then you can pull off the coil- and rotate it and press the pulley and clutch back on--- but most people just extend their wiring harness if there is no physical mounting interference problems..........

The number one A/C diagnostic tool there is- is to know how much refrigerant is in the system- this can only be done by recovering and weighing the refrigerant!!
Just a thought.... 65% of A/C failures in my 3200 car diagnostic database (GM vehicles) are due to loss of refrigerant due to a leak......

Ha, don't forget the retainer ring on the clutch pulley, can be a mean job if this is a 42 year old rusty compressor, may break the coil before it comes loose. If new, best to specify the clocking before you buy it.
