Default 01 accord AC compressor ticks at idle

Good day,

Bro-in-law just picked up an 01 Accord LX with 100000kms on it. Nice car...
not new, but not old either.... Pretty sure they will be driving it for the
next 10 years.

One thing of note is that the AC compressor makes a ticking noise at idle.
When you turn the AC on, the tick goes away. Upon inspection, it appears
that the pulley on the AC compressor is crooked.

Is this a major problem? Is it a known problem? I have never had any issues
with my 98 civic, and the AC compressor looks very similar...

Thanks
Terry in Winnipeg.

I have a similar 01 (EX 4 cyl with 90k km), and it is a great car. An
Accord with 100k is barely broken in... and there has never been any
issue with the AC. Did you check for the obvious, i.e. belt condition and
tension? Is the whole compressor crooked or just the pulley? The ticking
noise may have nothing to do with the pulley.

At idle, the pulley itself appears to be off center. Maybe the belt was
overtightened at some point?
