How many people have done this and have any of you guys used quality after market like valet or have you just replaced the bearing? Any other options, please advise.
I'm actually on your site right now, looking at either the bosch 160 amp or the valet ac compressor.Hey Guys,
Stealthy S60R is on the money as I would go about diagnosing this the same way. Once you figure out which bearing is faulty, if you wanted to email me your VIN to [email protected], I'd be more then happy to make sure you get setup with the correct part numbers for you R.
That's what I do, except I have a clean tranny fluid funnel with a flexible tube. The funnel is small but covers my entire ear.Easy way to test on your own is to get a stick that you put up to your ear hole while the other end is either on the alternator or A/C compressor. If the bearings are bad in one or the other you should be able to tell by the sound.
