Most people don't realize that you can remove the old compressor clutch and install a new the clutch kit without removing the compressor and disconnecting the refrigerant lines. A lot of members would benefit by you describing exactly how you accomplished this.
1. Chock the rear tire.
2. Jack the front of the car up with a rolling floor jack.
3. Loosen the nut on the tension pulley. (Do not remove)
4. Loosen the bolt on the top of the tension pulley to
Give slack on the belt. When you have enough slide
5. Lay on ground and remove bolt that holds plastic shield.
Rotate shield back away.
6. Remove four bolts that hold compressor to the block.
7. Get up and remove 2 bolts that hold heat shield for manifold.
Slide out of the way along the O2 wire.
8. Lift the compressor up out of the engine bay and lay it on top of
The drivers side radiator support. The clutch hold tool from
auto zone does not fit normal. I had to flip it and use the smaller
side. While improvising remove the nut from the clutch and
remove the clutch. When installing the new clutch check for free play.
9. On mine when I took it off it had one shim. When I put it back on the
one shim was not enough and there was a slight cyclical sound. 3 was
the magic number. Reinstall was the reverse of this.
