Hi,
I had a whiny A/C compressor, so ordered a new bearing for it, unfortunately i snapped the bolt holding the outer plate on while removing. A 2 hour job has just become a saga!

With limited access, i won’t be able to drill the bolt out in situ, so will probably have to remove the compressor.

would it be safe to refit the belt and drive the car a short distance, the compressor clutch is still held on by it’s circlip, or would it be too much of a risk without the outer plate and bolt holding it all together?

ive attached a pic of how it looks at the moment

thanks in advance

it looks like there is a bit sticcking out. you can buy adapters that grips so you might be able to get it out.
if that makes sense.

Does it run on the main belt ?.
Some run on a seperate belt so not a problem to run without it.
