Not long after I got it back from Tim, I noticed a small drip of fluid under the car, plus the air con had packed up again. I took it to my local specialist (Just Volvo, highly recommended), and he diagnosed that the air con compressor was shot and was fairly convinced that what I saw was the oil from the air con system (it had stopped leaving any fluid by this time). So I booked it in with him along with a couple of other bits.
- New Air Con compressor, Volvo seals & regas (again!!)
- I had new idler pulleys, which he recommended I did as mine were a bit noisy
- A new style reverse light switch, as my reverse lights had stopped working
- Also he put new seals on the oil cooler, as they were weeping slightly
- Fresh oil
It then went off to the valeters, which conveniently is next door! And these are some snaps I took yesterday evening:
