would a strap wrench work?
Exactly what I was thinking with a rubber strap that won't mess up the anodized finish. Those things grip pretty tight too and just need to keep the compressor from moving. If he doesn't have a strap wrench (pretty cheap at harbor freight) and the compressor is off, you may be able to grab it with your hands and spin it off.
Yes please I removed the 3 screws and the clutch is locked in placed but I can't get the pulley off my buddy tried spinning both ways it's on there tight so it's screwed on to a fitting
I can't remember was a few brain surgeries ago
If I lock tight on how could I get it off my friend could find anything to grab onto or even to hit with a screwdriver to get it off
There doesn't seem to be many people here who have the MBA ac pulley cover. I had a post back in 2012 where I was asking how to install it. I have the instructions somewhere and couldn't find them in a quick search but they were real basic IIRC.
I found this old thread for you and guy was having the same issue....
If it would help you, I could look a little more for the instructions. I just never mounted mine cause I wasn't comfortable with how it fit and just put it away. I do have pictures of the pulley cover if it would help. Can't load up til tomorrow but let me know if you still need some pics and I'll be glad to post them for you.
I did look at the pulley and there is a Double sided thread adapter that is reverse thread on 1 end and normal thread on the other end. I believe the standard thread goes into the compressor clutch and then the pulley goes onto the other Reverse thread side. Hopefully that helps, let me know.
Just as a btw - I need to replace my compressor and the replacemnt has a slightly different clutch. So I may have to find a different way/adapter to work with the new compressor. If you are replacing yours, keep this in mind cause I think the more expensive GM Compressors STILL use the same clutch that would work without issue.....except years later when you need to remove again.
