It's a hard job, the problem is if the old compressor locked up then need to clean out the entire system and replace the dryer, orface tube or expansion valve then add in the recommended amount of refer oil and pull a vacuum on the system to get all the air and moisture out, this will also tell you if you have ant leaks as it won't hold vacuum. If it's just the clutch it is a very easy job, just follow the directions on included in the replacement kit.
