Can I replace that A/C compressor clutch with myself. Which part exactly? Do I need to buy these both parts at following link or just one?

Thanks

    You can get the clutch, with the coil and plate, but it requires special tools to remove and install it, and you need to know hot to adjust the clutch properly. In my opinion, it's best to replace the entire compressor, in the end it's not much more money and you get a new compressor.
