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.
