AC Compressor Clutch

I have a 2004 F250 6.0 with a bad AC compressor clutch. I plan to have it repaired by someone else because of lack of time. Anyone have a rough idea of how much this costs?

I've had really bad results trying to replace just the clutch. The clutch failed for a reason, and that reason usually is that the compressor is dying. I recommend biting the bullet now and replacing the compressor and the clutch. Otherwise I suspect you'll pay to do it again.

I put a clutch on myself about 10 years ago. It was $100-$150 if I remember correctly. Three weeks later I spent $1300 to replace the compressor and much of the rest of the system when the compressor was trashed and spread junk throughout the system.

I know of many others that have replaced clutches and then replaced the clutch and compressor when the compressor failed soon after.
