A/C clutch shim procedure for S60

Checking the clearance

I’ve confirmed that my AC clutch is not engaging properly and that it could be because of wear to the clutch plate . I’ve read several posts about shimming the clutch plate so that the gap is return to within spec. I’ve seen instructions posted for other Volvo’s but not for the S60. Does someone have instructions on how to do this for the S60, or at least instructions on how to remove the AC clutch pulley.

Here’s the now famous DIY procedure to fix your air conditioning with a AC clutch shim, but for the Volvo S60. If your AC blows cold for only 5 minutes, and you’ve recharged the R134a, this may be what you need to do.
