Default AC Compressor Question.

The AC compressor clutch makes noise.

The AC doesn't work.

Right now I am not going to fix the AC but I will in the future, would it hurt to install a remanufactured AC compressor now to stop the AC Compressor clutch noise or should I install a bypass pulley?
I plan to fix the AC for next summer.
Regards,
James

I removed my AC compressor and installed a bypass pulley. The bypass kit can be bought at Autozone or advance, I'm sure other places ahve it as well. It was $39.95 I believe. It was a easy install. I did a write up on it if you need it.
