A/C Clutch Bearing Number/Size?

Post by jadnhm » Fri Dec 21, 2018 5:19 pm

I am pretty sure I hear a noise from my A/C Clutch - going to have to do something about it.

I have seen around the internet (mostly youtube - south main auto and Eric the Car Guy) discuss A/C clutch repair before and they've showed how often it's just the bearing that goes out, and the rest of the assembly is really ok. I'm not super excited about buying all of the clutch stuff for $250+ - electromagnet, clutch plates, .... - if I really only need a $20 bearing

Does anyone have info on what this bearing is?

Does anyone have an old clutch assembly they can knock the bearing out of to give us some info on it? A part number would be awesome but accurate dimensions should be enough...

Just one choice, I'm sure there are many others. Compressor clutch bearings are very standardized. There are not many different part numbers.

I don't know much about 2008 XC90, but for the 1998 S70 Zexel compressor, it is 35x55x20mm type.
