Need to adjust your Hood Resting Height?
Driver’s side setting was too low. One day — I don’t know when — I must have let the hood slam down too hard and it chipped and dislocated my turn signal assembly.
There are two easy 11mm bolts to untighten then tighten. The second is hard to see in the photo, but it’s there. The latch assembly moves up and down with the bumper, all as one.
Just a little movement in the height makes a big difference when you look at the hood when closed.
Use an extension. This is a Beginner level job. Very easy.
Bonus! Volvo Facts
- Volvos go the distance
The highest recorded mileage on a Volvo is three million, which has been clocked up by American Irv Gordon in the P1800 he’s owned since he bought it new in 1966. That’s a lot more than the figure needed to join Volvo’s high mileage club: 150,000 miles gets you bronze membership, 300,000 secures silver, and 500,000 makes you a gold member.
In each case, a special badge can be ordered to share your vehicle’s achievement with the world. And of course, the existence of such a club tells you everything you need to know about the durability of Volvo’s vehicles.
