Just make sure you only use zip ties that are color-matched to your car's interior and then set the bread clips aside, they may be used to secure wire looms... :lol:

How'd you guys manage to get enough clearance to get the zip tie under the half-circle? I tried a variety of flat head screwdrivers this morning and the best I could get was the tip of the tie under. I tried the procedure from the under the car, although it was not jacked up. If I remember correctly, I was using 6 inch ties.
Edit: I managed to cut the tips off and lodge them in, but they're not placed evenly

I wanted to add to this fix. I actually found that guitar picks and super glue were perfect and worked on both of my 850's. Thin and medium guitar picks are what I used. If the Gap is large use medium, if it's only off a bit use thin picks. I then glued them to the rubber pressure pads. Has worked for about a year now. :-)

Just tried this on my 2001 T5 and finally the compressor stays on at lowest temp setting (it used to cycle)

Vida shows 1232-1340kpa and the cooling fan is running at step 1 all the time as it should though during operation at higher temperature (say 21deg C) it would cycle along with the compressor (not simultaneously though)

I used Vida to activate the A/C clutch and this made inserting the ties a breeze. You could do the same thing with an alligator type test lead hooked to the grey A/C connector feeing 12V+ on the compressor though I would disconnect the grey lead from the motor loom first to avoid feeding 12V back into the ECM.

I used zip ties and they seem secure enough. Only time will tell if this is a good fix. Weather has cooled here with the beginning of Autumn so may not see temps high enough to test it properly for a few months. Wasn't until I posted that I realized I had the dustiest screen ever posted on MVS!!

Just wanted to add a bit to this thread. I have a 2004 XC70 and was able to access the compressor clutch for a ziptie fix via the wheel well. I folded back the forward part of the wheel well liner and clamped it out of the way with a pair of vise-grips. Not exactly easy access, but basically sort of hugging the brake disk and using my left hand with a screwdriver to pry a gap for the zip tie, and right hand to feed in the zip tie. I used three ties, and so far so good. My clutch gap was about 0.8 mm give or take, and I had the classic symptoms of AC working when starting the car, but slowly losing effectiveness as the car warmed up, presumably because the clutch was not engaging.

Just posting an update. I fixed my AC with zip ties in July of 2015. The AC still runs ice cold!
