Remove the center nut and then use a puller on it.

If I remember correctly the compressor shaft is a straight spline, and the clutch simply slides on the shaft.

Remove the compressor belts first.

You should be able to remove the clutch by removing the center bolt and simply pulling out on it with your hand.
Do this while lightly striking the outside of the clutch around it's perimeter with a rubber mallet.
Spray a little "Liquid Wrench" or "Pb Blaster"on the shaft before trying to slide it off.

Hope this helps
