77 chrysler AC clutch removal

My 77 Lebaron 318,automatic has a cold running AC compresser, but the springs on the clutch are popping out ( it still works,but not for long ). Can the clutch be R & R without taking apart compresser or discharging freon,if so do you need a gear puller? It looks like it would come right off the front after removing the center bolt. HELP! I live in phoenix,Az

Yes there is a hub puller that screws in after the nut is removed.You won't lose freon during the replacement.I have the puller but it won't help since I'm in Pa so see if a Dodge or Chrysler tech will pull the hub for you.Offer the guy a couple bucks to help you.

It helps to know

Thanks Davo, Looking at the clutch assembly, I thought I could take it off without removing the compresser, but knowing for sure gives me a degree of certainty and encouragement I wouldn't have had otherwise. Thanks Again

The puller is small I don't think you need to pull the compressor to remove the hub.
