AC Compressor?

I know your all thinkin AC in the winter.. Is this guy looney?

Anywho does anybody know how hard it is and how much it is to change out my AC compressor on my 04' 6.0? The last couple of mornings I noticed my AC compressor clutch ingage what seems like an excess amount and when it does sometimes make this horriable sounds. Or can I just change the clutch/pully portion?

To change the clutch 3.6 hrs w/o dual alternators. add .2 if you have duals. Same amount of time to change the whole compressor minus time to evacuate and recharge. Manual trans only .2 less on time according to Mitchell ondemand. If your like me it will take all of 5 hrs for some reason if it calls for this amount of time. I have no idea how hard it is to do but good luck.

If it is cycling too often you could have a slow leak causing the problem or a bad cycling switch.

I think I do have a slow leak where the steel lines conect. One time I noticed a bubbling, I kept checking it for about but never noticed it again. And yes the air isn't as cold as when it used to be.

But what about he pump is it hard to change? What all do I have to remove?
