S/V60 '06 S60 Weak AC, poor cooling and weird cracking sound when sliding out of front passenger seat.
I recently purchased a 2006 Volvo S60 and it has a few minor issues which I want to try and solve at home. The first is that the AC is not very strong. We had a regas about a week ago and while the wind coming out is cold, its not very strong. I have no experience with any other Volvos but compared to out 19yo Odyssey, its a bit weak. Even on 30 degree days, we have to turn the ac all the way up and cooling is very slow.
There is an ac blowing sound coming out of the glovebox area and I'm not sure if that is normal.
There is also a cracking sound under the passenger seat and i'm just wondering if there is anyone here with the same experience and if so, where should I start looking?
The attached picture is the view from the gap above the glovebox (when glovebox is open).
