A/C compressor clutch bolt missing

Hope somebody can point me in the right direction on this problem with my wife's car. It's an 04 Taurus, with the 3.0L OHV. She told me the A/C wasn't cold and there was a rattling coming from the front of the car. Took a look at the compressor and as the pic shows, the bolt has worked loose from the clutch and the plate would've came came off if the fender well wasn't in the way. I'm used to working on older vehicles, and definately no front wheel drives. What's the best way to get to this thing? The Haynes manual I have is about useless. Is there anyway to get the clutch plate back on without having to take out the compressor? If not, since the power steering pump if above the compresser,does the pulley have to come off the PS pump to get get it off, or does it and the bracket come off as a unit? The Haynes manual just says that on "some" models after 2000 the pulley has to come off first. Don't see how I'd get a puller in there. Just don't want to take a bunch of stuff off if I don't have too. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

Re: A/C compressor clutch bolt missing

The service manual calls for removing the compressor.
