Not too big a deal to replace the clutch as long as you have the proper tool.  You need a puller to extract the clutch using its internal threads, like removing the idler puller on an I5 timing belt if you're familiar with that process.   Autozone "rents" what it calls the 27005 tool, and the 200 Bentley describes as VW 1623, by selling it to you and buying it back.  It looks like this:  http://www.pbase.com/kneale_brownson/image/89001322

when I got home I hit ECON and opened the door and heard a noise. I
noticed that the AC was not fully disengaged and the inner part of the
pulley was moving just a little bit obviously due to some internal drag.

Would this be a problem with the AC clutch? Is it difficult to replace?
