Im going through this myself..

The Clutch bearing disintegrated and ate itself. The AC worked fine until the clutch mechanically failed, so my compressor is good but clutch is bad.

I looked online and sadly found that I have to buy the whole compressor... Cant just buy the clutch.

I started searching around for AC Compressor repair services but couldn't find much at all.

Curious - where did you find just the clutch?

I had the similar experience on a different car. I cross matched the bearing and replaced it and Wala!. I wonder if you can press a new one on these if the clutch is still intact but if the bearing is blown/ bad.

If you have to recharge the system, Sam's Club has a 30lb can for 80.00! This might not be country wide, but it is one heck of a deal!

Good Luck!
