Looks like this post is from a few months ago. Anyhow, It's easier and probably less expensive if you just remove the compressor clutch and pulley and just replace the clutch (and possibly bearing). That way you don't need to evacuate/recharge freon since that's an un-necessary expense. Dealers and most mechanic shop won't tell you this b/c they want you to buy a new compressor from them and charge you more for labor and freon recharge.
