    Was a PreRunner, now it isn't
    are you talking about the actual ac unit or the idler bearing at the very bottom of the motor?

    the instruction should come with the new clutch assy. but if not ten mm socket and snap ring pliers. should come right off. if not dont bang it to much youll f up your compressor. get a puller from autozone or what ever they rent them.

    item 14 is not listed in the parts list? isn't that all i need really? Thanks for the instructions though. I might pull the bearing and see if i can find the same profile bearing from all-balls or something.

    Yes but they only sale it as an assy. If your going the bearing rout then two sockets and all threadwashers and nuts. On socket fits the outer edge.on the other socket will let the bearing fall into it
