I have a 2000 mustang gt 4.6L, I have an a/c issue. I have determined that I am getting power to the compressor (13.5v) but the clutch is not engaging. I then ran a jumper from the battery and connected it to the two posts and the clutch still did not engage. It does turn freely by hand. Im pretty sure the clutch is gone so my question is how would I know if I just need to replace the clutch or the whole compressor. I have not read anything that specifically checks the compressor and I would hate to replace the clutch and then turn around and replace the compressor. There is a bit of price difference in the two projects, with having to discharge the system, replacing the accumulator, then having to recharge the system, if I were to have to replace the compressor. Vs just replacing the clutch in place.
