Issue in my opinion is as stated on the clutch gap. That was exactly what my car was doing last year. When the outside temp was about high 20's C, it was ok, but as soon as it went over 30C it would run for a while then go warm. Switch it off and leave for a while and the it would do it all over again. Clutch gap was way too wide.

Neil.
I'll take a look now, thank you for your input.

You have to look at the compressor pulley , the part that ouches the serpentine belt always turns, the outside face turns when the clutch is pulled in, and stops when the clutch is out

If you lose cold air and the outer face is still, it’s probably a clutch gap problem

The clutch disengages when it's blowing warm air.

should be a gap issue or an issue with the charge/compressor. but gap is the first thing to check/fix just give it a check or post a pic , if it looks like 1mm it's too much
