AC Compressor chirping

I have this very annoying chirp noise coming from the ac compressor pulley. I sprayed it with wd40 and it went away, but that only lasted for a bit and the sound came back. Does this mean that the compressor is going?

Its usually the bearing in the clutch. U can have a shop replace the bearing for around $20 for the bearing. Most shops will try to replace the compressor but you can find the odd one that will do just the bearing. A lot cheaper than replacing the whole compressor.

Thanks!
Is that something I can do without breaking an AC line open.
