Volvo S70, V70, 850 Heater Core Replacement - Video

Postby rspi » 02 Sep 2013, 02:26

In this video I replaced the heater core in a Volvo S70. It is almost the same in the 850 other than the way you remove the lower dash panels.

This. If anyone's unsure about doing the job, I just did this yesterday and it's dead simple. Provides a good opportunity to drain/replace the coolant and you will be needing your defroster to not be adding fog to the windshield starting around now. Helps that the parts are very affordable, too.
