I am following Rudy's write up. I am at the point where I am about to lower the subframe on the right side but I think I forgot to take off the pincher bolt. Is this the nut and bolt that is on the bottom of the strut where the bracket pinches the strut in place?

I feel I have to go this route because I cannot get to the bottom AC bolts.

Well I finally got it out. I actually had to lower my subframe just a little to get to the lower mounting bolts. Once I got them out, I raised the subframe back up and tightened the two subframe bolts. Then I was able to get the compressor off. The key here is you have to take out the passenger side fan. Once you get everything disconnected pull the compressor to the left of the motor at the same time turning it counter clockwise and pull it right up. I did this and it came straight out. Mounted in my bypass pulley and onward I go.....BTW the new belt was very tight to get on so you need 2 people....
