AC Compressor Field Coil replacement question

Problem with the AC not working. The clutch was not engaging. Hoping it was the thermal protector I removed everything to get to the top of the compressor. Checked the thermal protector and it is good. Checked the field resistance and it was 0. Looks like an open coil. My question is can the coil be replaced with taking out the compressor? It almost looks like I can get to the compressor from the side fender well. But, I'm not sure if I take the compressor loose that I'll be able to turn it enough to get to the front of the clutch.

Anyone know if you can replace the AC field coil with the compressor in the car?

I tried to replace this without dropping the compressor, I was so close to getting the pulley off but I couldn't.

What all did you remove to get the compressor off? Also, did you have any trouble getting the pulley off??
