Re: 96 960 sedan Struts and shocks Topic is solved

I am having issues sourcing front struts for my 98 S90. Can you still get front struts for your 96 960?

Re: leaking front struts on 1998 S90

The caliper looks very wet. Could be strut oil but it usually picks up a lot of debris and road dirt whereas the brake fluid is filmy so not as much. Spray the whole area down with brake cleaner and see if the wetness returns. Also, you can try gently tightening the hose a little to see if it's loo...

Re: leaking front struts on 1998 S90

Thanks for the tip on eBay. Too bad these started to leak right after they were discontinued. Any chance they'll start making these again or am I stuck with salvage yards if no luck on eBay? Also, thanks for the recommendation to do the sway bar links at the same time. That photo was from the passen...

leaking front struts on 1998 S90

Well a few weeks ago I noticed some fluid on the driveway just inside each front tire. Upon further inspection, it appears the struts on both sides are leaking. Not sure when it started but probably within last 6 months (since last tire rotation). Photos attached if that helps. Driver side 20201227_...

Re: very slow ATF leak on 1998 S90

Thanks Rick. That's going to be the next step if the leak reappears.

Re: very slow ATF leak on 1998 S90

Following up on this, had to get the car on a lift for a couple of days after it was wiped clean to spot the leak location. There was a tiny bit of fluid seeping from the pan seal that had been done the year before. Redid the seal and no leak so far.

Re: very slow ATF leak on 1998 S90

Will check the shift shaft seal again. No sign of leak near front of transmission. Must be coming from above the pan.

very slow ATF leak on 1998 S90

We have a very slow leak of ATF fluid. When I say slow, I mean I don't get any drops on the ground after a drive but I do see fluid accumulating on cables that run alongside driver side of ATF pan. If I wipe the cables and edge of the pan clean, then after another drive and wipe off, I get a very sm...

Re: 98 S90 leak from power steering reservoir

Instead of replacing the hose, it is getting a second chance. Shaved a little off the end and reattached with same clamp. Will see if if it holds.
