AC fan clutch on 2003 Honda Accord

my AC was charged by a mechanic in may. worked one day and not the next. finally a friend was snooping around and tapped the clutch of the condensor and whoolaa the ac cycled on. this lasted for a short while then it stopped cycling. i stopped, used a small wood stick to tap the outside of clutch again and it began to cycle. QUESTION, can just the clutch be replaced or do i have to replace the entire compressor? dealer is telling me the compressor at a toon of $700. Help!

first, there is no clutch on the condenser. second, the dealer is correct and the price is very good as well. Roy

You didn't answer the question, can just the clutch be replaced? Thinking $700 is a very good price is why this country is in the toilet
