    Okay, 2003 Land Rover Discovery 2 Td5 with factory-fitted 10PA17C Denso air con.

    With warmer weather not too far away, decided to tackle the a/c compressor clutch/coil/pulley.

    [I finally bought a new AC coil, new AC clutch and AC pulley bearing for the current 7PK AC pulley. I don't have a new 7PK pulley though. Bought the items from a company in China via aliexpress.com for a 10PA17C Denso (LR factory-fitted) - all parts checked and look/feel good.]

    The AC is fully charged and the compressor is good, so leaving the compressor connected and mounted in the engine bay. Took the serpentine belt off and then managed to get the AC clutch off relatively easily. The clutch is badly charred. Then got the circlip off (eventually) and removed the 7PK pulley.

    Now, the bearing in the pulley is shot, but I also noticed the clutch side of the pulley is not the best. I was thinking therefore not much point pushing the old bearing out of the pulley and replacing it with the new bearing as the clutch face on the 7PK pulley is also charred (just like the clutch).

    Any suggestions on what I should do now? Apparently Land Rover don't sell the pulley – only a new compressor (part JPB101330 - a Denso type 10PA17C)!!! Does anyone know the part number for the 7PK ac pulley?

    There's surely an easy way around this, even given 5km COVID lockdown in Melbourne (Victoria, Australia).

    Any ideas/suggestions greatly appreciated with summer not far away?
