Hi, after changing the turbo i noticed the aircon pump pully is a bit noisey metalic rubbing noise,(think its the pully clutch?) now my aircon needs a new condensor due to a light bump the car had before i bought it, never bothered getting one as not essential apart from the odd couple weeks of hot summer, wat im trying to find out is if theres a aux belt that anyone knows will bypass the pump till i find good s/h cheapish parts to fix the a/c any help much appreciated, thanks folks. ps its a 16v jtd.

If you have a Sanden SD7v16 compressor ( as fitted to early 16v JTDs I believe ) you may be able to change the clutch bearing for less cost than a new aux belt.

I did this myself and all I had to do was make a simple clutch puller with a scrap piece of steel, 3 off 1/4" UNC bolts ( Sanden = USA ) and another nut and bolt ( I used an 8mm thread nut and bolt ).

It'll look like this when done and setup -

With the clutch removed the pully is then removed. The Sanden manual gives details on the special tool, but I carefully prised it off a fraction at a time by levering against the adjacent bolts in the compressor body.

Once the pulley is off, the bearing is removed ( punch or press ) and new one fitted.

Total cost was about €11 + shipping for the bearing ( from Ireland ), 3 1/4" UNC bolts and a bit of time to make the puller and effect the repair.

( Ignore the other pulley in the picture - I was doing more than just changing the bearing ).
