I'm going to be straight up. I was quoted about $450ish to replace the bearing in the ac clutch and thought that was a little outlandish...So, my question is, is there anyone in NE Ohio who knows how to do an A/C delete, for cheaper then that.

Re: A/C Compressor Cluth Bearing HELP! (DUBitDOWN)

Keep AC just replace the bearing on your own. Just need to pull away the compressor from the motor remove the clutch and press out the bearing. Will need 3x 3 in m6 or m8 bots and steering wheel puller. Rockauto had a bearing for my corrado but I did not see one for your GLX. Could change. Also there is a dorman Part # 34214 that eliminates the compressor without needing different belt.
I can check my spare parts compressor to see if mcmaster carr carries a bearing.
