Since we are on the sumject of A/Cs, I have a
Jetta TD #2 has the wires to the A/C clutch cut
through (a previous owner thing), right at the clutch,
so a splice is questionable. But I have an identical
spare used A/C compressor. How do I swap the magnetic
clutch/coil between the compressors? I suppose I have
to figure how to get the shaft nut off w/out the shaft
turning. Can I do it w/out discharging the system
(assuming there is refrigerant in it)? Tx.
