The clutch coil (solenoid ) is located within the front hub of the compressor.It cannot be seen without removing the front clutch plate and hub/bearing assy.This requires removal of the pump from the engine.Special tools are needed to dismantle the hub unit from the body of the unit .It is possible to buy all the parts reqd,however this may cost more than an exchange unit.(not from dealer).As this car is 10 years old this could be the best option .The compressors on these are notoriously unreliable.hth
