AC clutch relay jump to force clutch

I saw that you can jump the connections to force start the AC clutch so the freon can be drawn in. Can anyone tell me which connections they are please? I have the relay out.

Oh It's a 2005 3.0 STX

On the top of the compressor there is a two wire connector, this gives 12volts and a ground to the Clutches Coil which will engage the clutch.
There is no + and - it is a coil of wire inside, so 12v on one tab and ground on the other.

Compressor should start on it's own if there is pressure in the system, no need to "draw in freon", could burn out the compressor that way.
