Re: I'm stuck - '97 960 Heater Core rear ducts removal

Thanks for the support. It gives me a boost to hear from people who have been there before! I did the bypass last winter after I couldn't see through the foggy windshield anymore. The core I got is the Hella/Behr (eBay from Eastern Europe) but it does have plastic connectors. I want to get a decade ...

Re: I'm stuck - '97 960 Heater Core rear ducts removal

Update: I realized that I misunderstood the instructions and tried to pull out the air distributor to the side, but the center tunnel hump would not let it squeeze through. So I cut each rear duct a few inches back, which I will repair upon reinstallation. I was then able to pull the distributor tow...

Re: I'm stuck - '97 960 Heater Core rear ducts removal

Since it was simple to do and easily fixable, I did cut the ducts as shown by the pics below. But while the box moves a bit, it will not come out, yet I cannot figure out what is holding it in. Here are pics of the box with the opening "doors" cut into the ducts: https://i.imgur.com/qYpnP0S.jpg http...

I'm stuck - '97 960 Heater Core rear ducts removal

I'm finally tackling this job for the first time, trying to be patient. The car is in excellent condition and I would like to keep it on the road for many years. I am stuck at removing the lower air distribution box. There are two ducts that come out of it that go to the rear. I have removed the one...

Re: AC Compressor Help (I'm stuck) - '97 960

Yeah, I was going to try the “secret handshake” method but I’m a little chicken. The Volvo guy will do the whole job for 2.5 hours, so I’m going to leave it to him! For future reference for others the compressor removal method is in the PDF in this thread: https://www.matthewsvolvosite.com/forums/vi...

Re: AC Compressor Help (I'm stuck) - '97 960

Thank you, good for future reference! Once I saw that the AC Clutch fuse was blown it confirmed that the issue is a clutch coil short. I’m going to replace the compressor next week. I have a local Volvo guy that’s vintage-oriented and he’s going to do it. I will update once complete with any added i...

Re: AC Compressor Help (I'm stuck) - '97 960

Ok I have confirmed that the 15a fuse for "AC Clutch" was blown. I guess I just missed that one first time around and assumed that the 5a fuse was the only one. So the hypothesis is that the compressor clutch is shorting out, this drawing high current and blowing the fuse. Next step sounds like comp...

Re: AC Compressor Help (I'm stuck) - '97 960

I just located and checked the wiring diagram of the relay in question and it points to fuses 11/2 and 11/16 in the engine compartment. Both are 15a. Since my experiment with the horn relay pin as a power source blew that 15a fuse, I will assume I have a blown fuse to the AC relay power due to the c...

Re: AC Compressor Help (I'm stuck) - '97 960

Thanks for the help. Before I saw your reply I messed with jumping the three pins in various combinations and got no result other than to cause the check engine light to go on. Sounds as you described the ECM cut off the switch until I will reset it. On the advice of a friend, I ran 12v directly fro...

I’ve located the AC pressostat / high pressure switch. Very easy to unplug via opening in front bumper below grill. Now to figure out what to do with the 3 pins...
