drop index tablename.indexname

But I suspect there maybe more to your question! Is this index used to support a primary key or unique constraint?

True, if the clustered index is part of a primary key or unique constraint. If it's just a plain index, DROP INDEX is the command to use.

You can use ALTER TABLE statment...

But why do you want to drop clustered index on PK? Is yous PK generaation not in order? Or want to created clustered index on other key columns?
