2005 SSR LOW MILES
NEED A/C COMPRESSOR FOR 2005 MY COMPRESSOR IS EXTREMELY NOISEY .....THANK YOU FOR YOUR HELP:liebe011::liebe011::liebe011:
I HAVE THE EQUIPMENT TO DO IT MYSELF I WANTED AN ORIGINAL COMPRESSOR BUT IT IS DISCONTINUED,I DON'T REALLY WANT TO CUT THE WIRE HARNESS TO ADAPT A DIFFERENT COMPRESSOR:banghead:bangheadWith the AC system it has to be pumped down and recharged when you change the compressor and some places will not want to put on parts unless they come from their supplier, also some require that you also get a new dryer and orifice with it. You might want to check with who ever you are going to have do the work before buying a compressor.
THANK YOU I WILL CHECK THE BRACKET:thumbsI would also be sure to inspect the bracket - seems 05-06 brackets break!
Here is the link Mike from AZ posted last year regarding replacement with Trailblazer SS compressor
Do not know your skills or the availability of parts but, maybe you could make an adapter for the connector instead of cutting the harness. Just a thought.I HAVE THE EQUIPMENT TO DO IT MYSELF I WANTED AN ORIGINAL COMPRESSOR BUT IT IS DISCONTINUED,I DON'T REALLY WANT TO CUT THE WIRE HARNESS TO ADAPT A DIFFERENT COMPRESSOR:banghead:banghead
yes.can i cut off the connector on the old compressor and solder it on to the new compressor??
I am willing to bet that your bracket is broken. My compressor was making a lot of "rattling" noises that turned out to be the broken bracket. It is possible to replace the bracket with the compressor still attached to the lines, but you have to pull the water pump and do a lot of contortions with wrenches. I replaced my bracket and then re-attached the compressor without cracking open the Freon system. If I had to do it again, I would not do it that way..... a crap-load of work.
I recommend you also consider replacing the AC belt tensioner.... they get noisy with age.

thanks dan,i'll take it out over the winterjeff:
It's a pretty easy job to remove and replace the clutch and/or coil. I've done it with the compressor off the car. Once the center bolt is removed you can see that the clutch and the coil are held in place by retaining rings that can be removed with snap ring pliers, one for the clutch and one for the coil. There are a few videos on youtube showing the job on gm compressors.
I have heard of others who have done the job with the compressor in place. But doing this work on a bench is much easier than on the car based on the limited access and visibility to remove or insert the snap rings and snap ring pliers.
While the clutch is apart you can check the bearing to see if it turns freely without any noticeable noise or if it feels rough. On one truck i thought i needed a clutch because it was noisy with the a/c on, but it turned out to be a bad outer bearing, so i replaced just that part.
