Default 1999 SSEi with A/C compressor noise

Ok, this has been an on/off again problem for a while, but now it has been on for a while. Then the A/C compressor is off I get a metal on metal noise. When I engage the clutch it goes away. What it looks like is the clutch is not pulling away enough and rubbing on the pulley. So, basicly this is going to need to be replaced sooner or later.

To remove it is it only 2 attachment bolts then the lines into the back, or is there a 3rd that I can not see from the top. Also, is this a PITA or just one of those take you time and you can get it things.
