Thank you Lager for the references.  As it turns out, I called a Volvo dealer who informed me that the bearing assembly is no longer available from the dealer.  When it was available the the list price was $145 USD.  So, I decided to pursue my Plan “B”.  I pressed out the internal busing in a vice (it was in there very tight) and pressed it into a new replacement bearing that was only about $7 or so.  In my car the failure of that bearing was the result of the whole A/C system going down.  Given the task it is asked to perform, I’m surprised replacement of this small bearing isn’t a regular maintenance item.
