Auto enthusiasts know that a reliable name is built into each Volvo, and understand that only the best replacement V40 parts will suffice when repairs are needed. It's not a regular occurrence that you realize that you have to buy a replacement A/C Compressor for your automobile. Volvo car, truck, or SUV enthusiasts have become used to a certain level of sporty handling when driving their V40 around town. When your Volvo V40 rolled off the assembly line, it was destined for a driver who values European styling in their automobile.
We may take this for granted, but it wasn't until the 1950s that vehicles were equipped with reliable air conditioning. On your Volvo V40, the main component of this system is the A/C compressor. The lifeblood of the air conditioning system is a refrigerant called R134a. The refrigerant emits cold air after a simple thermal reaction, and the Volvo V40 A/C compressor, as the name would suggest, compresses this refrigerant into a dense liquid. After that it goes to an expansion valve that turns it into a gas so it can flow through the evaporator. That cools it so it can emit cold air. Without the A/C compressor, your vents would only blow air that was the same as the ambient temperature of the environment.
