Lol fair enough. Not me I'm concerned. We head stateside for camping often. The little guy bakes in the heat. And I rather like things working right if I need them. I just don't have time right now to do work myself or I'd put it off a bit. Bit leaving in 2 days to head south leaves me little time to work with.

I would say replace it all, and with the compressor, you will need to recharge the system.

Do a search online... there is a lot of talk about a quick, cheap fix to get the clutch to engage by removing a shim to adjust the air gap.

If you actually need a new clutch, then I vote for a full replacement also. It sure would suck to fix the clutch only to find out that your compressor gets a leak in the near future.

I just replaced mine, along with a new drier/accumulator and an orifice tube. Both of those items will be necessary in order to qualify for the compressor warranty, plus they are both smart things to do at the same time.

I used all Motorcraft parts, and the prices were reasonable.

I did look at the shim fix. Was all just worn too good. Ended up cheaping out though, just doing the clutch. Already regret it but that's my problem now. Haha oh well.

Edit:The boy stole the phone and hit send. Haha
