The pipes are cold and sweaty in the engine. I already said so in my initial complaint. But normal air in the passenger compartment.???
Customer reply replied 3 years ago
The condenser also got warm on the side.
Volvo Mechanic: Enes, VOLVO Master Technician replied 3 years ago
You. Will have to run fault code test and climate module and see if temperature control motor control cold air flow to inside from evaporator also you must check as pressures and charge system in that car tends to clogge up also
