Comments about ToughOne AC Compressor with Clutch:

First one lasted only a few months and the second only lasted a few minutes and started shooting sparks. Going for number three. Glad its under warranty.

Comments about ToughOne AC Compressor with Clutch:

Compressor was noisy when charged, does not come with high pressure switch. Pretty pricey for the quality and the lack of parts.

Comments about ToughOne AC Compressor with Clutch:

Installed the compressor, accumulator, expansion and orifice tube with no problems. Pulled vacuum and added freon. Started the vehicle and A/C clutch would not pull in at 70 lbs pressure in the system. Troubleshot the wiring and found the compressor field coil wiring was defective; took 5 minutes to correct and 2 hours worth of trouble shooting. Charged the unit with 42 ounces of freon and test drove the vehicle. The compressor lasted 6 miles before the field clutch bearing started howling.
Advance was super replacing the components including freon. Replaced the faulty compressor with same unit. Pulled vacuum and added freon. The field coil clutch would not pull in. Found when the compressor went out it took out the 10 amp fuse and field coil cycling switch. Replace the fuse and switch; charged the unit to 42 ounces. Vehicle has been functioning as expected. I hated the extra work required to replace a "New Compressor" but Advance Auto was professional and made the experience a positive. Advance Auto Parts is my automobile replacement parts store. Great customer service and the warrantee was honored without question.
