Replacement of rubber components of A/C compressor clutch


Air conditioning compressor for Ford Mondeo MK 1. The rubber bushings on the clutch need to be replaced.


The first step is to remove the clutch disc from the entire compressor. Oil and rust the connections before loosening the screws.


A/C compressor disc removed.


Pry the clutch disc to disconnect it from the compressor. The metal should be pryed at each bushing. 


The photo shows how to remove rubber residue from the mandrels.


Before installing new rubber bands, the surface should be lubricated, which facilitates installation and minimizes the possibility of damage to rubber components during assembly.


The picture shows a repair kit with reference number 00226456 (rubber bushing: 00223126)


Using a special tool, pull the flange from the rubber bushing through the hole in the metal plate.


Correct the flange position as shown in the picture.


Lubricate the holes in the bushings to facilitate the assembly of the compressor clutch to the compressor pressure element.


The photo shows two elements that we will combine together in the next operation.


The mandrels on the compressor pressure element should be directed at the holes in the bushings and gently pressed until the clutch compressor pressing element rests on the rubber flanges of the bushing. Repeat the operation for each of the three bushings.

After completing the above steps, tighten the clutch disc together with the presssing element to the second part of the compressor
