Jeep Clutch Replacement...

Senior members..
I have a jeep wrangler that appears to have a bad a/c clutch, it reads .3 ohms between hot and ground of the clutch assembly, I do not pick up any resistance to chassis ground.....could you lead me to a manufactured website that might list the ohms values on a clutch.
My next question is can I just replace the clutch assembly or am I looking at an entire compressor assembly?

If you can find one clutch assembly will be close to $125.00. You can get an entire new compressor for $225.00.


When considering your next auto A/C purchase, please consider the site that supports you:

Or you can do what I do-- take your DVM with you to your favorite bone yard-- ask them to see their core pile of compressors-- those that come back as trade-ins for good used stock-- then find your model, then test the coil right there-- then offer them the $30 core charge for the entire compressor-- then go home and remove the coil and install it on your vehicle- without even discharging the system! That way you meerly bought a good used coil- and saved yourself a lot of hassle....

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......
