How can I repair an A/C cycle switch? Can this be done or will I have to replace the compressor?

There are 2 switches, a low and high pressure cut-off switch, both can be replaced individually without even evacuating the A/C system or replacing any other parts.
I don't know which one are you referring to, but here is the description for both:

The low pressure cycling clutch switch is located on the side near the top of the accumulator. The switch is screwed onto an accumulator fitting that contains a Schrader-type valve, which allows the switch to be serviced without discharging the refrigerant system. The accumulator fitting is equipped with an O-ring to seal the switch connection

The high pressure cut-off switch is located on the discharge line near the compressor. The switch is screwed onto a discharge line fitting that contains a Schrader-type valve, which allows the switch to be serviced without discharging the refrigerant system. The discharge line fitting is equipped with an O-ring to seal the switch connection.

I still miss my '99 Wrangler....
