Compressor kicks on and runs like it always did but now it makes a slight knocking noise when on.. Blows out outside temp. air and throws no codes...... Has a new pulley, bearing, and clutch and worked fine up until now....

Im thinking the compressor is bad... Any ideas????

Freon level is normal...

when they knock or seize its the clutch....cuz when they die they free spin and dont engage at all....its always better to replace the whole unit instead of just the clutch when you start having problems....if you just trouble shoot and replace the clutch because it was going out the damage is already done and soon the comp will die on u.

Sounds like a bad compressor. Are the refrigerant lines cold by the accumulator?
