If you have problems with your A/C clutch disengaging when the weather gets hot, removing the shim behind the clutch plate might solve your issue. This is an easy one, and the toughest part for me was getting the magnet wires back probed. All told, this fix took me less time than it took the wife to get back from the grocery store. This is all you'll need to do this job: 14mm socket and accompanying ratchet Two wires with alligator clips on both ends A couple T-pins Pick set Flat blade screwdriver The compressor is straight down from this arrow. It's on the bottom below the alternator. If you don't know where it is, you probably shouldn't be attempting this. Throw the 14mm socket on the center nut of the compressor clutch, and you'll find out pretty quickly that it just spins because the clutch isn't engaged. You could buy a special tool for this, but the clutch will do all the work for us if it were only engaged. Luckily electromagnets aren't exactly complex things; they just need power! Backprobe those two wires that come out of the right side of the compressor. Red is positive, black is negative. Put the socket on the nut now because it'll be harder to get on there with the magnet engaged. Connect the wires straight to the battery, and you'll hear a satisfying click of the clutch engaging. Jumping the relay is probably a more elegant solution. It's #44 under the hood. Thanks, Moose. With the clutch engaged, getting that nut off is pretty easy. You may need to grab one of the pulleys to keep the whole belt from spinning. Be careful not to let the pins/clips touch while you're digging around down there. Ask me how I know. With the nut off, use the flat blade screwdriver to gently pry the clutch plate off of the clutch. It'll look like this when you're done. On that shaft is a thin washer. Use a pick to get it off of there. Mine was stubborn. Yours may have more than one shim, but mine only had one. Here are a couple pictures of the clutch plate. That's the shim I took out sitting on the plate. Once you have the shim off, slide the plate back onto the shaft (a bit of grease wouldn't hurt), put the nut on finger tight, re-engage the clutch if you need to, and tighten the nut down. Test and celebrate!
