Dear Imskrceny-- Repair on air conditioning systems is usually something to be done by a trained and certified professional only. Because it is a federal crime to release refrigerant into the atmosphere, you will find very few experts who will guide you through the self-service approach. Why risk the possible liability? I suggest to take it to a pro. Good luck from Bovan.

is the clutch frozen? did you loose freon because of it? if you did you need to replace the compressor. if it's just the clutch you can do it yourself if it's replaceable,some are not.
