Chirping noise A/C clutch?
Hey everyone I have an f150 heritage, 140,000 miles. in the last year on start up until the engine is warm theres a loud, I mean loud chirping noise at idle, while driving, and increases in RPM's. not something I like to roll into school with everyday. anyways ive replaced all pulleys, water pump, alternator, and the camshaft synchronizer. I broke down and took it to ford thinking its the timing chain but $67 later they said it was the a/c compressor and want 1500 to replace that, recharge, new orfice and accumulator. they claim theres metal in the system due to the bearings wearing out. my question is if I replace the clutch, pulley, and coil would that be acceptable instead of replacing the whole a/c compressor? at the moment the truck runs fantastic except that noise so that's what im concerned with now. thanks for any input!
