On this vehicle, it is possible to replace "just" the clutch on the compressor. The Compressor will need to be removed from the vehicle and the clutch replaced "o nthe bench". The clutch kit sells for around $146 and the Labor Time Guide calls for 1.6 hours to complete the job. The A/C System will need to be evacuated and discharged before removing the A/C Compressor.
