At 95000 miles my a/c clutch started making a ringing sound. When the a/c is on and clutch is engaged the noise goes away. The ford dealer said they had to replace the compressor assy. At a different repair shop they said they had to replace not only the compressor but the filter drier and accumulator. I think it is just a bushing for the pulley that is bad and causes the pulley to wobble. Can the pulley be replaced only or do they have to pull the compressor? If they pull the compressor, do they necessarily need to replace the compressor?
Thank you for your input.
