Removing the a/c compressor from a 1990 seville

I need to replace either the whole compressor or at least the clutch on it. And I can't see really how to remove it. There is no info or diagrams of the a/c components in the manual I have. Any help would be much appreciated.

Cadillac seville won't start

I've got an even cheaper and easier solution, instead of buying a new cylinder, find that plug and snip the orange wires going to the old cylinder.Then remove the resistor chip from the key and solder each of the the wires to each side. this will fool the car into thinking the correct resistor chip is in place, allowing you to use the original key or any copies with or without resistor chips. i just did this to my caddy and it roared to life! :)

How do you remove the Air conditioner clutch from a 1997 chevy

Replace the whole compressor. If you don't have the proper tools to replace the clutch with, you will never get it out. The compressors are bad for the front seals leaking on those, and would be best to replace the whole thing.

Have a 1990 Jeep Laredo w/I6 4.0 and AC. Need Replacement belt.

The compressor has become an integral part of the system to the point that there is no listing for optional no a/c. Looking at the pulley/belt arrangement, the only way you could do this would be to remove the compressor and replace it with another idler pulley. Eliminating the compressor, not using an extra idler and using a shorter belt would cause the water pump to run backwards (won't work that way). If the clutch on the compressor is OK why not disconnect compressor from the harness and just let the clutch freewheel without engaging?
