The AC clutch is on the front of the compressor where the belt rides. When power is applied to the clutch it engages to turn the compressor.

IT should turn freely when the a/c is not turned on.

The ac compressor does not come on?

There can be a couple of reasons due to which the AC compressor of your car might seize to work. First of all check the wires leading to compressor and the fuse switch. Next you have to check if the compressor holds enough gas for AC to work. Also, check for a leakage in steel pipes that circulate the air.
