The bearing in the pulley goes and its expensive to replace the whole compressor as apparently its not a serviceable part. Ive found you can remove the pulley from an old one i had about, but its an on the bench job.

Its probably got a 4pk850 belt driving the power steering pump (shorter than the AC belt).

Hm, I've just ran a quote on 1st spares. Can pick up a air con compressor for £40. I am wondering if that will come with the pulley though. I am also curious if the system will be completely knackered as it has been exposed to the open air for what I can only assume has been a long time.

Nice little project. My compressor went,I got a later one from a scrapyard. 8n the meantime 8 fitted the shorter belt but after driving it I havent felt the need to fit it. My mpg also increased.

£40 is worth taking a gamble on (based on how hot it is on the costa-del-solway at the moment!). I doubt it will come without the pulley on as its a right arse to get off, question is does it work!

The pulley has a electric magnet clutch so its not running all the time, some surface rust or problems with it sticking maybe from a spare part, but at over £700 for a new one, i would try that first.

The pulley has a allen key bolt in the middle. remove that and pull off the clutch plate. Clean the clutch plates thoroughly with wire wool before fitting it as a backup measure ;-)
