Hi, is it possible to change the pulley on a B7 air con pump or is a whole new unit needed?
You can change the pully on its own mate. I got the pully an rubber seals for £40 on eBay was lucky but they are £120 new
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
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.
Where can i get the bushes then? Strip them from a new pulley? Cant even find where to get one from
The bushes can't be bought mate, that's why I bought the new pully and used bushes
Where u buy the pulley from?
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
Can he get me a pulley? Lol
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.
Can he get me one? Lol
Got me a pulley yesterday from TPS, ran out of time to fit it so its a job for tomorrow
Changed my pulley today, all noises gone, can see why too, the bushes were destroyed!
Have you got the part number for the pulley? Was yours only noisy when the ac was turned off
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
Exactly the same as mine
What year and model?
Mines a 57 plate 2.0 tdi 170bhp
Message TPS and tell them what your after and give them your reg number, they will help you out and get the right part from the vin number
Cheers for that
No worries, pretty easy to fit providing you got the tools and a way to lift the car to work underneath
Let me know how you get on
