A/C clutches are simple to replace as long as you set the proper clearance (most use variable thickness shims ).... but your problem sounds like it might be a little more detailed. I've found few reasons to replace an A/C clutch other than a shorted or open coil. Since yours engages and works OK but makes noise when not engaged, I'd be suspect of a compressor bearing.... that is if I understand your problem correctly.
