A/C Dryer

Post by oldironsights » Fri Apr 29, 2016 4:52 pm

Any idea where I might find the a/c dryer on a 2001 S80 2.9.
Blows cool, warm & cold.
Suction pressure @ idle heads south in the teens, then the clutch disengages.
Clutch engages when pressure returns north to 30 psi.
Head pressure holds steady @ a dangerous 200 to 230 psi.
Just ordered a new dryer.
Need to find the dryer location on the car.
Thank you.

Found it on the curbside between the condenser & headlight assembly by peering upwards from beneath.
Hope I don't have to disassemble the car to reach it.
I just did a brake job (Front rotor, pads, rear pads & rear parking brake kit) that only took me a few hours to complete.
I also scrubbed the inside surfaces of all four wheels while removed.
I had to replace the glass lens on the curbside headlamp.
Complete brake job was easier to do than replacing headlamp lens.
Brake job took less time also.
Hope replacing dryer does not require as much effort as replacing headlamp lens.
Aren't these Euro cars fun?
