Clutch , presure plate and gearbox remove

You need the right equipment and knowledge to do this job there are a lot of cables wires etc that need to be removed before the gearbox can be loosened and removed.
There are also a lot of special tools required and the job is best done on a ramp or pit to gain access.
Trying to do this on the ground would be difficult and very dangerous also the engine needs to be suspended when the gearbox mounts are removed.
It is impossible to remove the clutch pressure plate, plate and hydraulic bearing on the C4 without removing the gearbox.
Take it to a garage/ clutch specialist.

Well, YES, NO, and SORT-OF???

Your refrigerant evacuating and and recharging skills might be helpful, however, you cannot capture the R-134A refrigerant using the same equipment that you use on refrigerators unless you have empty refrigerant tanks to use. The refrigerants are not compatible with each other.

Then, yes, it is possible that your A/C clutch is slipping. You can verify this by listening to the sound of the compressor. You can usually hear the clutch making a grinding sound. There will usually also be a bunch of rusty-looking dust around the area of the clutch due to the metal tearing off of the clutch surfaces.

Then you need to decide if you want to replace the clutch assembly or the entire compressor. If the clutch assembly is all you need, then it can be replaced without any type of refrigerant recovery needed. It is also a whole lot cheaper to replace than the compressor (see picture and link below).
However, the clutch can be pretty tough to replace without the special tools needed - especially if you have never done one before.

Is it possible to replace the clutch without taking it to a garage on a Hyundai Accent 1999.

Yes it is if you have all the right tools and equipment. You will need a good set of jack stands to support the car. You wil also need a good floor jack with a transmission adaptor or a transmission jack. The driveshafts will have to be removed and that requires the removal of the axle nuts. They are held on by LOTS of torque and an air impact hammer is needed or a large socket with a long breaker bar for leverage. you also have to seperate the lower ball joint to move the hub assembly for axle removal, this calls for a special tool called a "pickle fork" or ball joint seperator.

As you can tell, it involves some special tools and equipment. If you don't use these tools often, then the cost of them might be more than what a garage charges to do the job. Places that do just clutch jobs (Like clutch masters) might be the best bet for the price.

2000 dodge durango with 5.9L. AC compessor clutch smoked, but still turning and AC still cold. Is the clutch assembly available seperate from the compressor and how difficult is this to change by average...

Yes the assembly is available but you will need a clutch pulling and a clutch installing special tools. They might be rentable, if not I dont think they cost alot.Its not a bad job.
You might want to read up on the job.Dont forget the gap spec.

Clutch Adjustment

You could try bleeding the slave cylinder. But it is very difficult and may or may not work. You may want to take it to an independent shop or back to the dealer. A special tool is needed inorder to depress the slave cylinder to properly bleed the possible air out of the system. It's a less expensive thing to try before replacing the clutch assy.
