Hi,
I'm wondering if anyone know if it is possible to purchase the clutch kit with having to purchase the whole compressor. I have rang a few places in the UK but the only want to sell me the whole unit 800 pounds. And getting the whole unit out is a much bigger job.

There are a few people who rebuild them but at only £800 for the new part, I wouldn’t go through the pain.

Manifold has to come off so you will be spending that again.

Is there not a Vauxhall match for the compressor? From the zaferia or the like... just need to swap the mounting frame.

We have looked extensively. I was told to look down the Renault Magane route but the mounting was different so went off the idea as it would be a bodge.

We have a supplier that does the 4200 pumps for £595 plus vat.

To be fair, if the clutch is failed I suspect the bearings will be pretty worn too.

Mine went at 48k miles and left the car stranded in Europe mid point of the holiday.

I would go for a new unti.

The clutch didn't fail the bearings just fell apart. But just want to replace the clutch kit any way.

My understanding from a rebuild company I know is that the bearing spins in the casing, wrecking the whole lot. You’re better off with a new one. Having said that, I do have a used compressor with a working clutch.
