a/c clutch pulley on 1996 Dodge Avenger

when the a/c compressor kicks on, the pulley sounds like a pinball machine. can you replace the pulley without replacing the compressor?

Asked by for the 1996 Dodge Avenger
In most cases you can but depending on mileage perhaps replacing the compressor may be in order. I recently priced a clutch for a Toyota 4Runner, it was only available from the dealer and the price of the clutch alone from the dealer was close to the price of a good quality aftermarket compressor (of course to replace the compressor the system needs to be evacuated and recharged which is costly.
