If the compressor has sized then all you have to do is switch it off ,

But if the compressor clutch has sized then you will have to be towed in as you have a serpentine belt that runs all and when one sizes then you have all systems blocked ,
To save a possible overheated system you will be better off having a tow to the Garage.

If its only the compressor clutch then this is all that need replacing which will be cheaper than if the compressor is sized ,

So if you switch off the compressor and its still sized then this is a compressor clutch failure , and the compressor may still be okay .

If you switch off the compressor at the control switch and its starts to run free then your compressor has failed and will need a new compressor ,if this is the case the system will have to be flushed out and the receiver dry replaced as this act also as a filter and will be damaged from the failed compressor .

Need further assistance then please get back to me .
