No doubt the cheezy rubber engagement surfaces of the a/c clutch have
worn out. If you look at it, you'll see. But don't worry! Since
this has happened, they'll tell you the A/C compressor has siezed,
that they can't repair the clutch plates and a new compressor
(installed) will only cost you about $500.
The way to minimize this happening in the future is not to engage it
when the car is doing high rpms, which no doubt really eats away at
the mating surfaces.
