Next, a snap-ring holds the hub and bearing (this is the part were the belt rides). Clean the area around were this ring rides, so the hub can be drawn off smoothly.
Then another snap-ring. This holds the clutch coil to the compressor. Take note of the alignment pin. Disconnect the harness and remove the coil.
Make sure the nose of the comp is clean.
Put the coil on first, aligning the pin. Make sure the snap-ring goes securely into the groove.
The new parts should slip on smoothly. If not, match them up to the old stuff. If they match, clean the comp nose.
Next, install the hub and bearing assembly smoothly onto the compressor nose. If the nose area is clean and free of burrs, this will slip on easily. Again, make sure the snap-ring goes into the groove. At this point, look downward and see if the pulleys align by eye.
Place the 10mm machine bolt through the plate an put the shims onto the inside of that bolt and install the plate. This step is easier if you can face the comp nose downward.
Secure the harness with the screw and plug it in securely. Reinstall the belt and adjust.
You're done. Cold beverage. I hope this helps.
