Is this part correct for 1993 S90?

My husband's 1993 S90 had a problem with the heater/AC. We'd turn the AC on
this summer, and heat would pump out. The mechanic said it needed part num
ber 3522797, which I found on the Volvo Parts Counter website, but it says
it's not compatible with this year/model Volvo. I've double and triple chec
ked this with the mechanic, who insists it's the right part. The part isn't
cheap, so I'd hate to buy it only to have it not work. Any thoughts?

You might have noticed, when you went to the Volvo Parts Counter website, that there is no such thing as a 1993 S90. At that time, your car was still called a 960.
Wiki says: From 1996, Volvo renamed the 960 in select markets as Volvo S90 (saloon) and Volvo V90 (estate) in alignment with the letter-and-number naming scheme used on their other models. This renaming applied to several European countries in late 1996, in North America from late 1996 for the 1997 model year, and in Australia from March 1997.

, and look for the owner' s manual, S90/V90 doesn't show up until 1997. It's possible a previous owner put the wrong badge on the car (replaced trunk lid, perhaps?), or you've got the wrong year. If you look at the 17-digit long VIN (Vehicle Identification Number) visible through the windshield, and on the driver's door sticker, the 10th digit tells you the model year. The sticker likely also shows the month and year it was actually built.
