1989 Accord Air Conditioner Squeal

    I have a 1989 Accord with a Keihin compressor. It squeals with the air
    conditioner off at about 2000-3000 rpm. In the morning it squeals at
    idle and lessens after driving a while. The pulley assembly and front
    plate are available from the Honda dealer. My question is, has anybody
    replaced the pulley assembly in the car (I would hate to evacuate the
    system and remove the compressor) ? It looks like the nut comes off and
    the front plate can be removed. Then it looks like a slip ring holds
    the pulley on. There are two other slip rings that I do not think that
    I need to touch. Does the front plate just pry off ? Does the pulley
    just slide off or is a puller needed ? I read other posts in which they
    always removed these components with the compressor out of car. Is the
    front nut a left hand thread ? Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks …
