Answering myself ffor now, I dissed the Comp from the motor, zip tied it
to the alt bracket out of the way, and put a small belt on it so I could
replace the clutch in the future possibly without opening the system.. I
could see fibre material jamming the pully unit solid to the comp body.

I will, however need a heads up on how to put a clutch in it when the
time comes.

Thanks for any input.

Same recently happened to my 87 Camry. I have decided not to replace the
compressor ($600) as the car is just too old. Please let me know if you find a
way to bring life back to a dead (seized) compressor.

noise,.........$$$= :-(

Well the darn thing was working great, no niose or leaks, it looks like
the clutch material just got loose and jammed the pulley into the body.
I can see it wedged all around it. Locked up tighter than hell. No
warning, just happend one late evening when I started it with it on.

I'm going to take it off, and see if I can put a clutch kit for 200$ in
it. I was able to detach it and zip tie it to the alternator bracket out
of the way til I get time to do it. It's secure and still charged.

Anybody with specificata on the clutch replacement would be helping
immensely my posting it.
