Is the A/C clutch possibly the problem?
Or even if it is a locked-up compressor, shouldn't Mr. Clutch turn loose if the A/C and Defrost were not turned on. Or simply remove the Clutch wire at the clutch to disable the clutch?
Or sorta worded a different way, could the Clutch (pulley) be replaced at a lot lower price than the Compressor?
Fully knowing, you still would be HOT, and have to hang your head out the window, for a breeze!
. But your serpentine belt would have a Operational pulley to run on. And you could drive to places, HOT, like I do!
I ain't never had A/C in my Jeeps! It is possible to "get by", until it's properly repaired!
I do not know what this particular compressor/ clutch looks like, just comparing to ones I am familiar with.
Just a thought!
saturntech9, you know all about this "HOT" stuff, Is my suggestion "feasible" on this vehicle?
