What Sensor Is This?

Was pushing some wires out of the way while reinstalling the a/c belt earlier and this little bugger gave way with almost no pressure on it. It connects behind the A/C pulley on the compressor hub. Question is what does it control (temp im guessing) and can it be replaced without replacing the whole compressor?







Really hoping I can just replace the damn sensor.

I'd think that would be the wire for the clutch on your compressor, does AC still work?

If it came from the compressor hub, it's the connection that turns your AC clutch (system) on. That would require removal of the clutch/hub and replacing the coil.

Its part of the AC compressor and as cam 427 stated thats how you change it.

Try turning on your AC and see if you get cold air.

that is for the a/c clutch,, it should be attached to the front of the compressor,, you can replace just the electro magnet but you need to remove the compressor and pull off the clutch plate and pulley/bearing, then the magnet will pull off and can be replaced

The good news is you will not need a new compressor. You need the compressor coil.

The pulley comes off first, there is a bolt in the center. Then the coil comes off with a snap ring in the center. Pay attention to which way the snap ring goes back in. The flat side goes against the compressor.
Once the snap ring is off, the coil will come off.

The service manual says - remove the AC Compressor "if necessary"

So I'm not sure if you can get to the bolt and snap ring with the compressor still mounted there, but it's worth a try.
