Do I have to remove compressor to replace clutch? It looks like clutch can be removed by itself.
No it can be done with the compressor attached. You might need an A/C clutch hub puller but you can rent that. Make sure you get the air cap correct when installing the new assembly, the specs should be in the information sheet with the replacement assembly.
