Cool 08 MDX - Accessing AC Compressor Connector

Does anybody know how to access the AC compressor connector without removing the compressor? I need to test the clutch to decide if I have to replace the whole thing or not. The shop manual ask to remove the Drive belt, Alternator, and compressor to access the connector. Any other suggestions?

So I was able to get my hands dirty and figure this out. In order to find and remove the AC compressor clutch connector I remove the top engine cover, front grille cover, front splash guard and coolant reservoir. After removing all these things I realized only the top engine cover and the front grille cover needed to be removed (and maybe the AC Condenser Fan if you have big hands)

The connector is right under the alternator on the front part, next to the exhaust manifold, near the oxygen sensor.
