Customer Question

I'm replacing 2007 Honda CR-V AC clutch/coil without removing compressor. Ordered/received kits. Today, I couldn't get the pulley off with pulley puller. Had to remove compressor. Still couldn't get pulley off. Yes, I removed the snap ring. Finally got
it off with chisel and hammer. WOW!!! Bearing came out with clutch pulley. There is no bearing in the kit. It looks like it was supposed to stay attached to the compressor. Any ideas!!!

good afternoon my name is ***** ***** I will assist
no, the bearing stays with the pulley. it presses out of the pulley and gets pressed into the replacement part. when you re install the pulley, use some vasoline or lubricating grease on the shaft of the compressor.

There's no mention of a bearing in the procedures or the drawings. Very important part i would think.

It looks like the bearing was attached to compressor housing. Maybe rust or corrosion.
Expert:  Roy replied 2 years ago.
yes it is but it is transferable from the old pulley to the new one.
the inner race get dirt or corrosion on the shaft making it difficult to remove
