Old Volvo

My 89 Volvo has an AC reciever/dryer on the right hand firewall. Piggybacked on it is an unknown part with a single tube from the it’s bottom to an AC line. Can anyone tell me what this part is? Mine’s leaking and needs to be changed. A part number if you have one might help also. Thanks

I found 3 receiver dryers for your vehicle. http://www.familycar.com/store/?Ntt=volvo+740+a%2Fc+receiver+drier+1989&oes=true

One of these may be it.

Here’s a picture sorry for the delay, I had a learning curve to pay for. The dohicky I’m talking about is the dark looking thing toward the bottom.

This may show it better Thanks again
