I retrofitted my 87' 300E to 134a 2yrs ago and it isn't very cold at idle. I was at a different tech. forum and a Volvo owner had the same problem. However Volvo as developed a factory retrofit kit which contains a more efficient condensor. Apperently the oe condensor could barely handle the r12 load. Has anyone heard of this for my car? Could I wire the fan so it comes on when the compressor is engaged? Or should I ask the ever helpful PartsShop?
