Must buy additional parts for a warranty. You need to read all the fine print. Same as in the stores. To many promotions....they need to just give the bottom line price and eliminate all the promotions. When i went to the store to pick up I decided to buy a 5qt of castrol oil and it was advertised $xx. I went to pay and they charged me $xx. They said the $xx was if you bought a filter also. I said the advertisment says '$xx for a 5 qt container OR 5qt and a filter'. Will I buy there again? NO. I'll go to [@].

            Easy to install on my application, has the O rings but you will need to buy compressor oil. Took it to have it charged and $100 worth of Freon came gushing out the bottom of the housing. Took compressor off and the compressor body had (or was) split from end to end. No hassle exchange and replacement has worked fine for two weeks now.

                  horrible clutch

                  Comments about Driveworks Remanufactured Compressor with Clutch:

                  I installed this on a truck that I only use for short trips. I guess I should have bought the bypass pulley instead as three months after buying this the clutch seized up. Very difficult in getting a hold of anyone to do anything about it.

                      What additional parts are required for the warranty to be valid on this part? One poster said that additional parts were required (and usually are for AC compressor warranties--and usually must appear on same receipt)

                        A:

                        Yes, if the A/C clutch is bad it can cause the actual A/C pulley and/or belt to squeak. However with out the presence of your vehicle we cannot provide you with a 100% answer.

                      • A:

                        There are several things that can cause this. My suggestion would be to loosen the belt from the tensioner, then spin by hand the pulleys for the accessories. The alternator and a/c clutch should both spin freely (these are the most common sources of squeaking).
                        Generally if one of these is not turning, then you will see excessive belt wear, and can actually see it not turning when the engine is running, so if the belt is not melting and snapping rapidly, you're probably looking at a faulty bearing. Spinning the pulleys by hand will allow you to both listen for a rough bearing, and listen for a squeak.
