I've a suspect Aircon pulley bearing on the way out on our Aygo. Has anyone ever replaced an Aircon pulley? As I haven't yet found just the pulley part online, is it possible to get just the pulley or do I have to get a whole new Aircon pump unit?

If I can't get a pulley I wondered if anyone had taken the pulley off and tried to replace just the bearing if that's possible on this particular unit or is it riveted in or an odd sized bearing?

Cheers

Just had a thought, as a short term solution can I fit a non-AC Aux belt and thereby bypass the AC Pulley or would that not fit?

Yes you can bypass the compressor, you will however need a smaller belt to do it.
I have never heard of anyone on here rebuilding their own one. But I guess anything is possible, you could possibly pick up a used one for a lot less than rebuild any way.
Try small cars are us ltd on 0121 559 4202. Sure they can help you out

Remember that the aircon refrigerant is a pollutant and must not be discharged to the air, so if you do decide to remove the compressor you should have the refrigerant removed first by a garage/workshop with the necessary equipment.

Thanks for the comments. At the moment the Aircon doesn't provide any cool air in the car. I've not had the AC re-gassed since I've had the car as we hardly ever use the AC. The AC output had been dropping off over the last few years and I'd not got round to re-gassing it. I'd assume there's still some gas in the system that would need to be removed or is there a way to tell if it's still pressurised?

Unless there's a major leak there will still be some gas in the system, so best to assume that.

I thought you knew that the A/C compressor was faulty. Asking about a rebuild?

This is a job for an AC pro

Get a used compressor from Small Cars R Us and get the pro to fit and gas

I can turn the compressor so I think it's still good just needed a re-gas but now the pulley bearing sounds and feels rough. i'd hoped to just get the pulley and clutch replaced but that doesn't seem possible for this unit. On my Civic you can buy the pulley/clutch separately.

Just got a non-AC aux belt as a stop gap till I get a new compressor fitted by a garage. Although not sure how much the quotes will be... and then work out the best option to go with.

The club shop doesn’t keep it a part in stock. You’re Ebay has some average price £350 plus new seals
and recharge and test. On top that the labour. Keep in mind that not all garages fit customers own parts.
For a 2009 car unless I was using it for long, high mileage journeys my choice would be a short belt.
Good luck
