r170/w202/eaton m62 clutch removal
I've searched and read many posts on the r170/w202/eaton m62 supercharger, not only on here, but on the internet... there was even a post on benzworld on how to replace the bearing...
I have a 99' w202, but same engine as the slk230 - the m111.975 - now, on to my question: I bought a brand new clutch assembly for the kompressor and want to replace it, I just serviced all of the tensioners, pulleys, and belts and was going to replace the s/c clutch and pulley as part of that, unfortunately, I was unable to get the s/c out, and tried getting the clutch off with the s/c mounted on the engine - was also unsuccessful as in all of my attempts, the clutch would just spin, I tried using the old serpentine belt to hold it, tried vice grips, no luck.
My question to you: how/what's the best way of removing the clutch assembly? DO i have to remove the s/c - is this easier? Would I need something to put between the rotors in the back to stop the clutch/rotors from rotating when I attempt to unscrew the 8mm bolt on the front of the "unidamp" clutch?
