Fitted a new Aircon compressor today, just need to get the mobile guy back to regas and I should be nice and cold again. Tried a regas last week, held vacuum, took gas, clutch engaged but no difference to pressure high side or low side so internal compressor fault advised.
Did the change from on top by taking out the inter cooler pipe and fan pack, plenty of room but a bit of a struggle finding the bolt holes to go back in because their hidden under the alternator so it's touch only and the compressor is a bit heavy in one hand!

My AC was serviced a few months ago.
Needed a new condenser and a re-gas.
Ice cold air now.

Retro fitted aftermarket rear parking sensors. Nice of Volvo to mark the sensor positioning on the inside of the bumper, and to leave sufficient space behind the speaker cover on the D pillar to fit the sounder. Got the front ones to do now, going to try out the electro-magnetic strip type so no holes needed...apart from in the dash for the switch!

The brake Servo seal repair I was talking about. It seems this is also good on other cars with such issue https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=saX-GG6s1Ck

I have 5 of them, 4 with Michelin Pilot Sport 4s on them plus a space saver (a Volvo one with a Hankook on it). I had them on eBay for 599 bid - I think that is a bargain given the Michelins have done about 5K and one is 3 weeks old.

I have a new air con compressor but mine threw up a fault code telling me the motor was my issue...typical of my car tbh. Get something I thinks she wants and she asks me for something different. Just like the wife but more expensive.

Yesterday I fitted new track rod ends as mine are starting to get loose and noisy when you move them, after do that I went and booked up my mot,
and I did not remember them having a tyre machine ,so I asked if I came and removed my rear wheel would he re-seal it for me as it was leaking about 5 psi over about 2 days,
and he said to take it back today, and I did he removed the tyre and cleaned the wheel with a flapper disc then resealed with 3M black rubber tyre sealant,
no leaks now, i gave him a 10 can box of dark fruit strongbow for doing the job, mot is booked for the 29,so i hope another year of motoring,
Dave
