S60 - Condensation in rear Windshield - Water Accumulation Trunk Lid

Hi Everyone, I hope everyone had a good weekend. I was wondering if someone could shed some light on where to troubleshoot an odd issue, on a '04 S60. I am noticing condensation on the rear windshield while parked, when all other cars next to me don't have it. I initially thought it might have been ...

Re: Performance Upgrades

These engines are geared more for longevity as opposed to power. If you had the 5spd, it would have already been more fun to drive. Nonetheless, you could put a stainless steel exhaust from ViVA or iPad. That would be a start. The rest depends on how much time/money you want to put in it. I agree wi...

Re: Headlight Switch Module Not Working, DIM is dark, and radio is dark. Why? Help! Topic is solved

I know this is a slightly old thread but this happened to me last night ( exact same symptoms! ) and while researching I stumbled upon this thread. I wanted to share with you folks a fix. I took out the LSM, cracked it open and saw no visual damage/cracks on the soldering. I ended up taking a heat g...

Re: HU-613: upgrade to HU-650 or HU-803?

I see. Would you folks say that the difference between the 803 and 613 worth the upgrade?

Re: HU-613: upgrade to HU-650 or HU-803?

Hi Oragex, I'm aware that the trim is different. If you look at the HU-650 from the S80 it has the cassette player. Please see photo below 05-06-07-Volvo-V70-HU-650-Radio-Single.jpg I'm aware that the faceplate on that is curvy on the top right versus angular on my HU-613, what I was wondering is if...

HU-613: upgrade to HU-650 or HU-803?

Hi Everyone, I hope all is well. I had a radio question. Currently have an HU-613 in an 04 S60. Works fine and they very reliable, but I would like to have RDS which means I either: - Upgrade to the HU-803 which is more costly and involves adding the amp and center speaker; not as reliable as the 61...

Strut disconnection from tower w/out affecting alignment

Hi Everyone, I hope all is well. I came across one of Oragex's video's with regards to rust on strut towers and I was wondering if anyone was able to disconnect them from the tower without affecting alignment. The haynes manual says to take a measuring caliper and "measure the distance from the back...

Re: Trip Computer addition Topic is solved

Thank you for sharing the video. It looks like it covers the process for any pre-P2 platform.

It makes me wonder if the trip computer software is stored within the DIM as opposed to the CEM. Can anyone confirm that?

My '04 S60 unfortunately never came with one and I would I would like to add it. I swapped the turning signal stalk with one that has the buttons, but it doesn't work. I fin...
