    A/C Compressor and Clutch

    A/C Compressor and Clutch Operation:

    Assembly consists of both the air conditioner compressor and the air conditioner clutch assembly. When the clutch is engaged, an electromagnetic field pulls in and locks the front clutch plate and the compressor together. When the electromagnetic field is shut off, the clutch plate releases and allows the compressor pulley to free wheel.
