Remove/Install Third Row Seat – Volvo 850 Wagon

– Remove the plastic trim “cap” near the middle (#2) seat belt attachment, where the second row seat latches in. The cap has a long thick tab behind it and is a minor PITA to remove. Lift out slightly on the rear trim edge, then rotate the cap toward the engine and slide it forward slightly as you turn, and the cap will pop out. This gives you access to the mounting bolt for the second seat belt anchor, at the wheel well.

V70, S70, XC70 Door Vinyl Fix

This is a write up of my solution to the ugly door panels that the 98-00 Volvo’s suffer from. It may not be for everyone and improvements to this method are welcome and wanted.

Many of us have this in our cars.

The manufacturing process failed to completely adhere the vinyl to the foam in a few places and when the vinyl began to shrink from heat and age, it pulled away from the contours of the panel and the foam glued to the fiberboard.
