About Aircon Pulleys

The car's air conditioning system works to condition the air, which means while cooling the air in the car down, it also helps to ensure there isn't too much moisture in the car, so it stops the air getting too humid. The car's air conditioning unit also cleans the air in the car by filtering the dust and other particles from the air inside the car.

The BMW aircon pulley  is part of the system that powers the aircon compressor, a vital part of the car's aircon system, and enables it to do its job. The car's aircon compressor is what pumps the refrigerant gas around the closed loop air conditioning system and works using an electric clutch and pulley system. Usually made from cast iron or alloy metal, the  BMW aircon pulley can be found at the front of the aircon compressor. The BMW aircon pulley fixes to the aircon compressor, which,  along with the clutch, turns the compressor on and off as and when cool air is needed.

The electronic clutch lets the pulley spin around when the aircon unit is not in use, but, when the aircon compressor is activated by the aircon switch, the clutch connects and the BMW aircon pulley then powers the aircon compressor.

If you detect a rattling, grinding, screeching or howling type noise coming from the aircon compressor it is possible you have a problem with the BMW aircon pulley, perhaps an issue  with the pulley bearing, which wear out eventually. You may also notice the BMW aircon pulley wobbling when the car engine is running, which is a further indication that the aircon pulley could need replacing. If the BMW aircon pulley fails and you have established that this is the only problem with the aircon compressor, then the cheap and relatively easy option is to replace just the BMW aircon pulley and not the entire aircon compressor. If the BMW aircon pulley freezes and stops working altogether, this can damage the serpentine belt which powers the system.  The serpentine belt also powers the car's cooling and charging units, so if there is a problem with this part, it's important to replace the BMW aircon pulley as soon as possible to avoid any other damage.

BMW trivia

  • The BMW 3.0CSL was sold in the 70s and had the unusual addition of a spoiler that was kept in the boot. The owner could install it if they wanted to, but BMW couldn't sell the car with the spoiler attached because of road laws!
  • That distinctive BMW car engine sound that new owners fall in love with might not be real. The BMW M5 has such a quiet engine that they had to install fake engine noises to keep drivers happy!
  • Think you know what BMW is an acronym of? If you answered Broke My Wallet, you’re definitely wrong. It really stands for Bayerische Motoren Werke (which is Bavarian Motor Works in English).
  • The BMW M1 has a classic look, so it's no surprise that its designer also came up with some other amazing car designs. Giorgetto Giugiaro is also responsible for the DeLorean, the Beretta U22 Neos handgun, and the Nikon D4 camera! Although, he also designed the Yugo, commonly called the worst car that's ever been made.
  • The Cold War affected BMW sales so significantly that the company was nearly bought out by their arch-rivals Mercedes in 1959. A silent investor saved the company, but the rivalry between BMW and Mercedes Benz is ongoing.
