Default A/C Compressor question

I have not been able to get my AC to blow cold air. About a year ago I replaced the air mix door and check recently to see if the temp. will change from hot to cold and it works fine. I had Midas look at my AC system to see if it needed to be recharged and they told me that my compressor is bad. The compressor clicks alot when it is running and the air doesnt get cold enough. I looking to replace my compressor and are wondering what parts should I buy. do i need the compressor with the clutch?

In order to have the new compressor warrantied, you will also need a new receiver drier, and it would be smart to change your orifice tube. Once you take the orifice tube out, if it is extremely black and grundgy, you should take the lines off and the condenser so that you can flush out the entire system. Then when it is all cleaned and put back together, run a vacuum pump on it, to get rid of any condensation in the system, then your next step is the freon.

Good luck,
