Discharge A/C system, using approved refrigerant recovery/recycling equipment. Remove compressor. Using a spanner wrench or clutch holder, remove clutch plate bolt. Discard bolt. Thread an 8-mm bolt into clutch plate, and remove clutch plate and shims.
Remove snap ring. Remove pulley assembly. See Fig. Disconnect clutch coil lead. Install Shaft Protector (T89P-19623-FH) over compressor shaft.
Install 2-jaw puller on compressor. Tighten puller to remove clutch coil from compressor. DO NOT use air-powered tools when removing clutch coil.
