2006 Volvo V50
Volvo cares about the environment. The air conditioning system in your car contains a CFC-free
refrigerant - R134a. This substance will not deplete the ozone layer. The system contains 1.2 lbs (530 g)
R134a (HFC 134a), and uses PAG oil.
Passenger compartment filter
Replace the cabin air filter with a new one at the recommended intervals. Please refer to your Warranty
and Service Records Information booklet, or consult your Volvo retailer for these intervals. The filter
should be replaced more often when driving under dirty and dusty conditions. The filter cannot be
cleaned and therefore should always be replaced with a new one.
NOTE: There are different types of cabin air filters. Ensure that the correct type is installed.
The display above the climate control panel shows the climate settings that have been made.
There are two functions in the climate system that can be set to your preferences:
Blower speed to Auto mode (models with ECC only).
Timer controlled recirculation of the air in the passenger compartment. For information about how to
make these settings, see the Personal settings section on
Models equipped with ECC (option)
The sunlight sensor on the upper side of the dashboard and the passenger compartment temperature
sensor, located behind the climate system control panel, should not be obstructed.
Side windows and optional moonroof
The electronic climate control system will function best if the windows and moonroof are closed. If you
drive with the windows or moonroof open, it may be preferable to manually adjust the temperature and
blower control (the LED in the AUTO switch should be off).
The air conditioning system is temporarily switched off during full throttle acceleration.
