Re: Headlight wiring help 2 questions

Ya I’ve got my drl switch set to off. My hope was that I could turn it back on and use whatever wiring was powering the “drl” option to run the leds. Basically take the drl function from the headlights as it currently is and give it to another light source

Headlight wiring help 2 questions

Hey all, so my lights suck. I’m going to do the projector retrofit and I’ve got all the parts I need, including a spare set of headlights so I can just swap from one to the other. On top of that I’ve already unhooked the headlight extensions the recall installed My issue is this: the internal wiring...

Re: Wiring to headlights badly corroded.

It’s funny, fcp has the whole harness but I didn’t see the parking light bulb on mine ( well, on the 2003 c70 lights I took apart)

Re: What did you do to your Volvo today?

Heater core. And since I only watched the how to video once I didn’t remember where to clamp the lines off so I’m really glad I had a full jug of euro fluid after my impromptu coolant bath. Fun times.

Has anyone tried aluminum foil to fix headlights?

Ok I know this will sound a bit weird but I’ve been thinking about how we could improve the shitty reflectors without spending $$$. I’m about to do the cheap projector mod and I’m going to play around with a spare set of lights before, so I was thinking about trying to cover the insides with the foi...

Re: Cv boot torn, replace boot or whole axle?

Here’s some pics I just took of what I could. I tried the bounce test and it just sounded like suspension. Either my fat ass couldn’t hit it enough to replicate or it’s not happening now

Re: Cv boot torn, replace boot or whole axle?

To clarify a couple points, they’re all the same size (205/55/16) at least The clunk is only on the “potholes” in front of my driveway (only time I notice it really) and it just sounds like someone is knocking in muffled metal, like the floor (this isn’t where the sound is coming from just trying to...

Re: Cv boot torn, replace boot or whole axle?

I don't see a tear in that boot, is it the inner boot (the one shown) or the outer one (barely visible in your pic, near the wheel) that is torn? Actually maybe I see a tear in the outer one there. Much more common for the outers to split with age. If the CV axle is not dried out or badly contamina...

Cv boot torn, replace boot or whole axle?

Like the title says, I found out when I had some work done that the drivers cv boot was torn, and was asked if I heard a clunk when driving. I only ever hear it when I’m backing and turning out of my driveway onto my shitty road. Will replacing the boot fix this or do I need to do the $400+ axle? Th...

Re: Brake light issue , need advice

Check the harness going to the rear hatch - you may find broken wires in it. Is there a guide on that someplace? Or a specific place to look? I’m really leery about ripping into this trim if I don’t need to Edit: that actually makes a little sense considering my rear sprayer only works when it want...

Brake light issue, need advice 98 v70

Ok those is going to be a little weird. Not long after I got my car I turned off the drl, because why not. I noticed that when my headlights are on, I’ll occasionally get the bulb failure light to flash on when I hit the brakes. Doesn’t stay on, just blinks quick enough for me to notice, and doesn’t...

Thinking about acquiring one of these boxes, tell me what to look for!

Ok long story hopefully short: I’ve always wanted what I can a tribar Volvo ( because headrests) but never really made it a priority. I got a p80 v70 not long ago and while junkyard diving I ran across a 93 in pretty good shape (aside from the knackered motor). I don’t know what model it was, it loo...

Who's done there RIP kit and NA intake/tb? Need advice!

So I’ve been researching a ton. I’m working on stage 0 but while I’ve got her apart I was thinking about doing a few upgrades, and that led me to the RIP and NA mods. I’ve got a 98 awd v and when I pull her apart to do the timing belt and pcv i thought why not? For those with the RIP kit, how are yo...

New guy with some questions, I've learned a lot!

Hey all, I just got a 98 V70 AWD/GLT a few weeks ago and I’ve been loving it since. I’ve done a few upgrades thanks to Robert DIY and this site, but I’ve got some questions still. First, what I’ve done: Swapped the headlight relay for a 99 Installed a factory strut brace from junkyard Pulled the hea...
