Default AC compressor leak

My compressor appears to be leaking around the housing. Looks like a gasket failure. Can you get a repair kit or should I replace the compressor?

It depends where the actual leak is from. The o-rings on the hose fittings are prone to fail. I took my car to an ac shop and they told me my compressor was leaking and it would cost $400 to fix. I told them not to touch a thing. I went to autozone, bought a pack of ac o-rings for 5 bucks, replaced them, got the ac leak tested recharged at a different shop. And have been leak free ever since.
