I'm trying to track down a whining noise ... I have a suspicion it's the A/C compressor clutch.

If someone else could release the tension on their serpentine belt with the engine off (a heavy duty tent peg works for this), and then tell me how much their A/C compressor pulley can be wiggled sideways, I would appreciate the response ...

Brian, I tried this on two A3's I have in stock. One with 119K miles and one with 48K miles. the 119K has only a slight sideways movement, say maybe 1/32" or so. The 48K one might be a cun! hair less. Later!
