Head Bolt Torque and Sequence please

Postby Tammysvolvo » Fri Jul 08, 2011 10:41 pm

My 2000 Volvo S40 1.9L Turbo needs a head gasket replacement and I need the Torque and sequence for the head bolts please. I have been looking up and down back and forth for it and cannot find it. Thank you and may angels be with my car.
