After it sits it blows cold again for same time frame. Been diagnosed as a compressor clutch needing to be replaced. Cost $701.00 does this seem reasonable?

The clutch engages the compressor, cools down the cabin to correct temp, clutch turns off. It takes one heck of a beating. Doesn't sound like it went out, sounds like it is going out. I believe at that cost they are selling you a complete air compressor. That cost sounds high, unless you are getting it from a dealer! Goodluck
