I know there's supposed to be a special tool for replacing the clutch 
without compressor removal, but I haven't seen or used it. A friend 
of mine with an Audi shop in Rome (NY) has been threatening to buy 
that tool. I'll be stopping by there sometime tomorrow or the next 
day and I'll check it out. Might not be very expensive.
