If the clutch bearing is bad then yes, you would want to remove it in order to have room for the belt. Or replace the bearing. National 5106WCC looks to be the number, runs about 20 bucks. Not hard to replace either. Remove the front hub, dig out the snap ring, press out the bearing and press in the new one. Reinstall and put the snap ring in place. You wouldn't need to install the hub if you don't want to use the AC.
