AC clutch repair options

I have a noise coming from somewhere on my belt/pulley setup. I had a friend help me diagnosis it this past weekend, that it was the compressor clutch. I am wanting to replace the clutch, can the clutch be replaced without doing a full compressor replacement?

I have been searching here and Google/YouTube but no hemi ram repair videos or steps can be found. Also from what I have seen it seems it might be possible but you will need special tools to do the repairs. I am mechanically inclined and have a ac clutch tool kit sitting in my Amazon cart now just wanted to make sure before I buy the clutch repair kit and tool kit that I am not wasting my time.

Thanks,

2010 Hemi Ram 4wd

Finding the clutch will be the biggest part of your issue as they are pretty much a thing of the past these days sadly. You can find them and there really is not any special tools other than snap ring pliers needed to do so.

I have found a few options on Amazon(https://www.amazon.com/dp/B075V3WKMZ..._wVTWCbF58SA67)

Seems to be the one and price is very reasonable. I will order this and give it a shot in the next few weeks and report my experience.

Thanks, I'll need all the help I can get from the forums. I do all my own repairs outside of transmission rebuilds.
