Remove/Replace AC Clutch Bearing

I have an 87 XJ making an awful racket. I have ruled out the water pump, clutch fan, idler pulley, power steering pump/pulley, and the distributor. When I took of the belt the noise was gone. I'm thinking it's the clutch bearing on the AC compressor.

Can anyone tell me how to get the clutch off the compressor so I can inspect and possible replace the clutch bearing?

This will tell you everything you need to know:

I don't own an XJ any longer, but I still think they are the best of all the Jeep products ever made. My XJ was my favorite vehicle in my 50+ years of driving.
So...I stick around and give advice.
