    I have the same problem on my BMW, but the compressor is at the bottom of the engine. I'm pretty sure it would need to come out. The Suburban compressor is easy to access, so I don't see why the clutch couldn't be replaced ON the truck. The question is "who will do it?" Most mechanics don't bother rebuilding them anymore, since replacement compressors are relatively cheap.

    Are you sure it is just the clutch, I replaced an AC clutch only to find out it was really the compreser...just sayin!
