Maybe someone can help me with this:

I have to replace the A/C condenser on my 2008 C70. There are 2 different chassis ranges for this car, 48613 and 48614, and, to make it worse, it seems both chassis ranges are listed through the entire model run. Here's the VIN: YV1MC67268J048329.

I'd rather have the parts on hand than order them after I take the car apart. Thanks

The last six of your VIN are 048329, so that is your Chassis number.

The chassis break is at 048613, so you fall under the chassis range that needs part number 31418515.

You would think, but apparently that is NOT the way it works. Like I said in my original post, both chassis ranges run from 2006 to 2013

No, that's exactly how it works.

There are two models of condensers for two chassis ranges.

Chassis -48613 uses 31418515
Chassis 48614- uses 31418513

Your car is chassis 048329, so it is the 1st chassis range.

And just to show you, once you profile your car with your VIN, it eliminates the wrong choice...

Well, if VINs run sequentially, one might assume there would be a model year or VIN break for the chassis range; the two tables below, from FCP, show the chassis ranges running concurrently. And, while I had a Volvo dealer give me the 31418515 part number, I really don't want to spend $350 plus for the OEM if there is an aftermarket condenser available for under $100.

FCP lists both because Volvo doesn't provide a MY break, simply the chassis. So because they don't know definitively what year the chassis break falls under, they simply list both for the entire range of model years.

Sorry, but I wouldn't use a listing from an aftermarket company as a reference vs an actual Volvo employee giving you information from an actual Volvo parts catalog...

That's what happens when using an aftermarket parts catalog sometimes. The Behr 31356003 listed on FCP is for your chassis number.

And this is why I'm trying to determine the correct chassis range: A/C condenser listed as correct for 48613 is not. Having pulled the condenser out of my car, it's a Valeo / Ford part #989551X / 4N5H-19710-AD, and the replacement part # for that condenser is Behr 351307621. However, that part does not match the condenser I removed. The one that actually matches my original condenser is Nissens 31356001, which is listed for chassis range 48614

Your chassis number is the last 6. Maybe there is a mistake in the aftermarket parts listing. Wouldn't be the first time.

I’m not sure if you are the original owner. Maybe someone replaced it with the wrong part number before you bought it? Maybe there was a recall on the part and it was upgraded by Volvo? Do you have the history of the car?
2007 is a transition year for Volvo to Ford.

I would go by what FCP provides for your VIN. If it doesn’t work then exchange it for the other one. Simple. I have a MY05VR with 04 parts. Later 05 models have the upgraded steering rack.

There was no recall and Ford bought Volvo in 1999. The P1 chassis was the first chassis with Ford involved. That came out in 2004.

If you compare the images, there are what I think are two significant differences: one of the steel lines has a kink at the bottom, and I think this is because the steel line is inside of the condenser mount, not outside; the second difference is the side "tanks", mine are smooth, no tabs, and the "correct" condenser has tabs on both sides. I'll know later today if I have the correct condenser.
