The clutch on my ac compressor is turning a little when my truck engine is running is there some way to clean it out so it doesn't stick and keep turning. It works fine when the ac is turned on inside the truck.

    There is a gap between the clutch plates and this gap is adjustable. It may be that the gap is too narrow and needs adjustment.
