By any chance someone has the assembly diagram for the front strut on a 02 V70?
I already replaced twice the "upper spring seat' (rubber part) the first time I used parts from IPD and two months ago I bought "Moog life time warranty" and today I noticed that one of the rubber spring seats has broken again...
I am pretty sure that I assembled the components in the right sequence but I wanted to be sure (that's why I need the diagram), I will also disassemble, clean and re-lubricate the bearing because it may be putting extra stress on the failed part while turning.
Somehow related, at the same time I will be replacing the bushings on the lower control arm that are shoot, I don't have a press hopefully I won't have to take the arms to a shop for removing/installing the bushings.
Any comments will be greatly appreciated, thank you.
I recently purchased a 2001 V70 T5. I need to replace the front strut assemblies and it looks like I'll be completing a lot of the other maintenance activities that you've discussed in your recent posts. You've provided a lot of good info. Thanks. Can you recommend a good service manual? I haven't been able to find anything for this model.
