Replacing AC Compressor Clutch! How to?

The job will require the compressor to be removed from the vehicle. This requires the refrigerant to be reclaimed and after the compressor is reinstalled it will have to be evacuated and recharged. If you do not have the tools to do this then you should have the job done by a mechanic that does. If you have these tools and have removed the compressor, the clutch is removed by removing a snap ring and sliding it off, then the coil comes off the same way. The job is simple if you have the correct tools. If you need a mechanic to do this job, you can contact a qualified technician from YourMechanic, who will come to you with the needed tools and perform the job for you. I would recommend having the system diagnosed first to verify it has a bad clutch.
