So I started installing the wife mandated aftermarket A/C, and have made it as far as installing the new compressor, condenser, and belt. Nothing is hooked up and the compressor still has it's plug bolted in place. I started it up and started to get a squeak from the pulley/clutch area of the compressor. I can make the squeak louder or absent by pushing on the front of the pulley/clutch. I called Jeep Air, and all the lady said was to tighten the belt (I hope the product is better than the customer service).
The question I put out there to all my WF friends with A/C knowledge, is this part of a break-in period for the compressor clutch, and will it hurt the compressor to drive the Jeep even though nothing is hooked up (hoses, wires, etc.) I get about an hour and a half everyday to work on it while the kids nap, and its killing me not to drive it.
Thanks in advance.
