Fan Clutch. Is it replaceable?

Post by 352pro » Mon Sep 09, 2019 4:01 am


I replaced the a/c compressor in my 2008 XC90 3.2; however, now the a/c is no longer working properly. I checked the pressure using one of those $50 recharge with pressure gauge kits available at the general parts store, which suggested the car has plenty of pressure. Yesterday I noticed the auxiliary fan moves freely in both directions with no resistance when the car is turned off...

My question is, can I save a bunch of money and simply replace the fan clutch of the auxiliary fan? Thank you so much. This forum has been extremely helpful in allowing me to preserve my XC90.

It's an electric fan, so no clutch? Is the compressor coming on?
