AC clutch failure.... anyone fit it?

The AC clutch in my car has let go. It might be just a bearing or the whole clutch, not sure. I don't want to replace the whole compressor as that would be a big job having to recharge the refrigerant. Has anyone got any info on replacing the bearing or clutch? I found this but hoping someone else has additional info:

I'm not sure about Boxster availability but I just did this fix for my daughter's Jeep. There was a kit, Pulley with bearing, clutch and all parts. I had to pull old and replace with new. $80.00 fix as opposed to many hundred $$$ for compressor and re-charge. Rented AC pulley Puller from Auto Zone
I also rerouted belt away from AC pulley until I had part in hand. Allowed me to drive around until I was ready
