    Default 405 SRDT AC pulley removal

    Evening all,

    Advertisement


    I recently bought (in collaboration with my brother) our grandfather's 1994 405 SRDT before it was traded on a Mazda 2.

    It has a couple of issues, the first of which is a bad AC bearing. My brother had an initial attempt at removing it, but it looks like we'll need a special tool to hold the pulley while removing the bolts.

    Can anyone recommend a suitable and inexpensive tool?

    Hello Team,

    I now have my 405 SRDT safely in Sydney. It was a smooth drive back down and it returned excellent fuel economy of around 5L/100 km. I ended up having to get the AC pulley issue 'fixed' by a mechanic in Brisbane as I just didn't have the time to fly up, stuff around with it myself and then drive back. Long story short, they fixed the bearing and somehow stuffed a seal in the process. It was working fine apart from the bearing when it went in, but now 'won't hold gas'. I'm keen to have a go at rectifying this myself as much as possible now that I have the car at home and am wondering if you have any thoughts on my options in terms of the compressor:
    1. Try to replace the seal in the existing one.
    2. Try to source a secondhand compressor.
    3. Try to find a rebuilt unit.
    4. Buy a new one.
    5. Other options?
