    Stuck Compressor Clutch Plate: Suggestions on Removal

    2006 Hyundai Azera
    145k miles

    I just climbed out from under this car. And with filthy fingers and brow furrowed in frustration, I bang this solicitation for suggestions into the keyboard. Here goes...

    The field coil on the compressor is bad. I intend to replace it. I have the car on jack stands with the compressor dangling from its hoses. I've removed the 8mm fastener in the center of the clutch plate, and that is as far as I have gotten.

    The clutch plate will not... come... off.

    The clutch plate spins freely. The pulley to which it is mounted spins freely. The clutch plate usually just slides out of the pulley after the 8mm fastener is removed, but this thing will not release from the spines that hold it to the pulley. I've doused the part with PB B'laster best I can, tappy-tapped the clutch with a ball-peen hammer, and pried at the edges against my intuition ...all for the past hour, at least. Yet...

    The clutch plate will not... come... off.

    I drilled 3mm holes laterally through the clutch plate above each perimeter rivet, then inserted a rod to act as a lever at each point. Still...

    The clutch plate will not... come... off.

    I am officially stymied.
    Suggestions? Recommendations?
