A/C on 1977 300D


Maybe I am beating on a dead horse, but I have not been able to find an answer to my question. I have a 1977 that was left for dead - maybe for a good reason. My question is how cold is the A/C supposed to get? Mine was recently recharged, has a new dryer, and it barely seems to blow cold air even on the "Auto/High" setting. Should I have the compressor checked? Or is the 1977 known for a low power A/C? I recently test drove a 1983 300TD that had a freezing AC; after 10 minutes of running the car at AC MAX you could make ice inside.

All advice would be welcome.

Thank you

When you find someone to fix the problem let me know. I live in Ingleside and have a 1975 115 300D that I have just gone through. I haven't gotten to the AC yet but I bet I will have the same problem as you. Did you convert your system to R-134?

Nope, I have not done it yet. I just feel that my AC is slowly dying. And with the impending summer heat, I feel like driving my Volvo more. It gets freezing in less than 5 minutes.
