I feel for you on replacing the compressor. When I did an engine swap on mine it was a real pain to remove with the engine out of the car.

Yeah, I was going to try the “secret handshake” method but I’m a little chicken. The Volvo guy will do the whole job for 2.5 hours, so I’m going to leave it to him! For future reference for others the compressor removal method is in the PDF in this thread:
