Re: What did you do to your Volvo today?

Tried fixing my washer fluid light staying on this morning, without any success. Sensor might be faulty. Sometimes the float gets stuck. I was able to dislodge mine with a magnet. I have a friend who used a screwdriver (or any long object) to just lever it unstuck. Both easy, just take the fill spo...

Re: What did you do to your Volvo today?

Thing is though: if you are mindful that you don't turn the steering wheel to full lock you should get away with it. You will need to inspect the inner wheelhousings occasionally. A nice idea in principle but I have to park in a very tight multistorey car park every day. Perhaps I need to find an a...

Re: What did you do to your Volvo today?

on my 94 without bumpstops on the a-arms it did rub. and that was without lowering springs. I believe that they didn't rub on the S70, because that was the standard size for S70ies, at least for the european market. Blast, that's annoying. In 205/50/16 the only two premium tyre choices I have are t...

Re: What did you do to your Volvo today?

To go back to the age old tyre questions, can I fit 205/55/R16 tyres on my 850 or will it rub? My car is lowered 30mm presently, and the change to 55 from 50 profile will add 10mm diameter to the sidewall height. 50 profile tyres are getting tricky (read expensive) to find in the UK and are limiting...

Re: 1998 S70 N/A noises in suspension

Oh, my bad! Here's the link again: https://youtu.be/yOCtKi2Sr9M Can you explain what drop links and arb bushes are? Do you mean the rubber bushes in the control arms? Keep in mind, English isn't my native language :) My bad! Drop links are the little links that are bolted onto your suspension strut...

Re: 1998 S70 N/A noises in suspension

Private video, I'm afraid. Clunks can be drop links though (at least that is what mine is!), and bad arb bushes can also cause clunks on undulating surfaces. Your description of the symptoms for the fully-loaded car do seem to suggest CV joint to me though.

Re: What did you do to your Volvo today? (now Sticky)

Quick question unworthy of its own thread. Do esthe V70 under bonnet insulation fit the 850s? 850 ones that aren't shredded are seemingly impossible to come by, whereas V70 ones are much more readily available. Clip locations look similar, dimensions of hood are the same as far as I'm aware, same en...

Volvo 850 Seatbelt Jamming

Good morning, Yesterday my 850s drivers side seatbelt completely jammed on me, wouldn't retract or extend. After some Googling I found quite a lot of links to here and other forums, where it appears to be a somewhat common problem, with no real fix other than replacing it. I had a need to get to wor...

Re: Quick Q regarding SIPS airbags Topic is solved

Thanks both, you are both correct - I also found another thread which covers the differences in the seats in V70s (-98 and '99-00), both in terms of cosmetics, functionality and airbags. https://forums.swedespeed.com/showthread.php?191888-Seats-amp-seat-skin-DIFFERENCES-(-98-vs-99-00)&highlight=gews...

Re: What did you do to your Volvo today? (now Sticky)

The Pilot Sport did not have near the traction as the Primacy 3 on dry pavement causing unwanted wheel spin on moderately hard accelerations and were really prone to overnight flat spots causing the first 10 minutes of driving like riding in a hay wagon. Other than that I'm sure they are fine tires...
