Vehicles (17 Jan 2019)
You can now add the vehicles you own to your profile as little icons that appear in your profile and alongside your posts.
This is a bit of an experiment. Take a look under the "REWARDS" menu across the top of the screen for the vehicles "ADD/MODIFY" option.
Let me know how you get on.

I have 2 jimnys, the grey one has bearing failure in the compressor pulley so is bypassed, the red one is like yours and stuck on. yet to have a go at that.
You could try a few swift bats with a hammer and bit of wood, which might free it off, otherwise you have these options:
1. accept that its always on (but press the button on the dash in to stop the dash icing up)
2. fit a 4pk850 belt which is shorter and will bypass the AC compressor altogether (resulting in no AC, but keeping the power steering).
3. Pay through the nose for a new compressor and regas (over £700 i think), used compressors are likley in similar condition unless much newer.
There is a 4th option im working on which is to remove the clutch and clean it up. The clutch plates are removed by undoing an allen bolt on the pulley, prise off and see what it looks like. as its at the bottom of the engine it gets all the dirt unfortunately. Note I havent tried this yet.
Even if not, is it possible to take the AC compressor to a specialist workshop to have them disassemble it and repair the clutch?
