29r Triton V10 A/C issue.
When turning on the A/C (front dash) I'm getting a constant noise in the engine area that I am assuming is an A/C clutch issue. I'm getting cold air, it's just very noisy so I'm assuming the compressor is working. Questions:
1. Am I running any damage risk driving the vehicle as long as I'm not running the A/C? (no noise with A/C off).
2. Is this an issue that can be handled myself? Is the clutch assembly easily accessible?
3. If not, where is a good place to seek help? Ford truck dealer, RV dealer or any shop that handles vehicle A/C issues?
4. Assuming it's a clutch or pulley issue, any idea what a ballpark replacement/repair cost might be?
