    Air Con Pump Pulley

    Hi, is it possible to change the pulley on a B7 air con pump or is a whole new unit needed?

    Cheers

    Cheers, ive had a look online but cant find where to get the kit, people are saying the bushes could be gone. I might look at getting the pulley off and see if it stops the noise and also see if i can get a part number off it


    Thanks

    The bushes are what problem is lad. My Machanic on put the new bushes on my old one. If you need a pully let me know as still have a new one without bushes.

    I have the same issue with mine. Its rattly and my air con is useless.

    If the pully is kaput, will it stop the a/c from working??

    Any one point me in the right direction regards a new one.

    I just had my old boy on the blower, hes in the refrigeration business and has managed to get me a new complete compressor, with the offending pulley ready to fit for £175 notes all in. And hes going to fit it for me and gas my system up in exchange for a few hours cleaning his passat. Win

    Lol. That's what i asked him for in the first place. He cant seem to locate pulley only from anywhere.

    Apparently,although they are available, its recommended to change the lot. Obviously from a money making point of view. And I have read that people have changed the pulley only with success.

    But for 175quid it doesnt seem worth bothing tbh.

    I can have a look at my invoice and see what it says regards numbers.

    Yes it was noisy switched off, quietened down when on but still sounded a bit odd

    No worries, pretty easy to fit providing you got the tools and a way to lift the car to work underneath
