A/C Compressor pulley rotate freely?
Can someone confirm my thought that the A/C compressor pulley should rotate very freely when it's not engaged?
I ask because I finished doing a bunch of work, and fired up the car after sitting for about two months.
I heard an unusual noise from up front. I pulled the serpentine belt off, and the alternator, P/S, and tensioner all spin freely with no noise.
I then tried spinning with A/C pulley and it had some drag to it. It didn't spin freely as I would have thought.
So I'm hoping someone may have one on the shelf that can confirm my suspicion that my compressor is on the way out.
