2002 Dodge Caravan (3.3 liter V6) air conditioner clutch?

Air conditioner clutch has gotten noisy, especially at start-up, but continuing as speed increases.  Air conditioner itself works well.Can I replace AC clutch only? Or does the entire compressor unit including the clutch need to be replaced?
Car has 110,000 miles (nearly all highway miles)

Charged air conditioner and still blowing hot air is the a filter to be changed or a bleeder valve

Is the compressor running? If it is, then use a set of gauges to determine the pressures in the system. If the system was not evacuated prior to charging, then air may have gotten the system. There are pressure switches that will stop the clutch if pressures ate too low or too high. The blend door may not be moving to the AC side .

I was driving up 95 doing about 80 n when I got off the highway n went to a light my van just cut off

It could have overheated. run out of gas. stayed locked in high gear and stalled as it stopped. You did'nt say if it would restart? You did'nt say what engine? It can have a 2.4 liter 4 cyclinder a 3.0 liter V6, A 3.3 liter V6, or a 3.8 liter V6. It can have a 4 or 5 speed automatic transmission and the 4 cyclinder can have a manual transmission as well. It can be air condidtioned and problems with it can stall the motor. the battery can be low or dead and thiers not enough power to run the brake lights and the fuel pump both so the engine shuts down. It might restart if you turn off everthing and certainly the defroster and anything that uses electrical power.

Check to see if air conditioner clutch pump is engaging on engine. If it is you are probably low on freon.

Air conditioner inop

First suggestion is the clutch not engaging. Check voltage at clutch plug and confirm power source, if there is power there then clutch would work unless it has failed.
