Is there a better write up for using the bread clips? There has to be a metal alternative e-clip that should also work right? Ac works for 5 mins and shuts off so it's that time to shim now but I'd like better explanation.

If you want to "do it right", skip the bread clips and just remove shim(s) from the clutch to narrow the gap... it's not really too hard. Just get the right rent-a-tool from Autozone and maybe some 4mm bolts (IIRC) to thread into the clutch plate.

Otherwise, bread clips or zip ties or whatever...

Here's a thread on a different forum with pics: https://www.matthewsvolvosite.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=31203

To get to the compressor, you'll need to jack up the passenger side, remove the passenger wheel and wheel liner, then it's right there.
