10P17C Shaft Seal Retaining Clip

Gary Harrison on Thu January 22, 2009 8:59 PM User is offline

Year: 1997
Make: Acura
Model: 2.5 TL
Engine Size: 2.5L
Refrigerant Type: R134a

I purchased a new shaft seal kit for my 10P17C compressor from ackits.com. The kit contains expected seal, a new C-clip retaining ring, and a compressor body oring (don't plan to separate the body). When I inspected the existing seal, I expected to see the C-clip retaining the seal, however instead I see a retaining clip that appears to have 3 tabs that drop into the ring groove and 3 trailing centering tabs that remain in the compressor coil extension nose (?). Any tips on removing this clip. I'm thinking I'll just destructively pry it out w/ screwdriver, and replace w/ C-clip in the seal kit.

thanks

Thanks Tim.

What I saw was the felt ring retainer. I removed this and found nothing beneath the felt ring. No C-clip or shaft key that I can see. I think the end of the compressor must need to be removed to access the seal.

thanks
