Repair your wires terminal ends,they look bad.
When replacing the contactor keep like colored wires on the same side. Reds with red,Blacks with black etc.

I spray some contact cleaner, and it help it. So I know I in the right area. Of it still need to be replace.

If I turn off the circuit breaker, and I know high voltage is coming into to it. I was going to use muti-meter to check voltages before I start taking it part. What else should I becareful of be for removing it?

I notice the wiring issue too. I had plan repairing the connection, once I replace the part.

Thanks

Since it is sticking replace it.
The contact points are worn that causes voltage and amperage issues that affect the compressor and fan motor.
Loose terminal ends and bad contactors cause the wire stress you are seeing.

Icehouse.....spot on mate..at times the simplest things are overseen. while replacing the contactor  it's also important to look out for probable causes for the error. a chocked condenser could make the compressor draw more current heating up and arking contact points eventually.
