Re: Does this cheap XC90 look OK to you?

Thanks! That actually doesn't look too bad, especially if the leak is in the front cover. Just time consuming. At least it's on top of the car and not under it! I do have the skill and tools to do this. I normally wouldn't buy a car needing this much repair, but with being stuck at home because of t...

Re: The great P80 Volvo Bloopers - Idiots - Fails thread - April 2020

Spent a week on my back taking out the AWD unit in a 2000 V70XC because of the infamous whine. Got everything back together and it still had the whine. It was the axle. Removing the axle was Step 1 of the operation.

Re: 98' V70 XC AWD CV Axle Assembly!

Your are a better man than me instarx. Axles are a pretty easy, but the time and parts I have to remove to get to it are what spur me to go with rebuilt O/E. I don't remember exactly what brand aftermarket I bought that went south on me in less than a year. If aftermarket works for you, then stick ...

Does this cheap XC90 look OK to you?

HI People!!!! I'm baaack. :evil: :). I no longer have my much loved 2000 V70XC, but do not worry it is still running and making itself useful. I gave it to an out-of-work friend who badly needed a car. He loves it. He kind of rolled his eyes at "station wagon" but after having it for a month he is a...

Re: I'M BACK!!! lol. need help, of course. (AWD removal) Topic is solved

I'm going to answer my own question. when I removed the angle gear last year I decided to put in a new axle and CV joint assembly. It was not expensive. The bearing on the new assembly has separated from the axle, allowing the shaft to slide in and out. In other words, I got a cheap-ass part that fa...

Re: Press for replacing upper torque mount

I simply bought a new one from rockauto. Much easier than going through all that pressing rigamarole. They aren't expensive.

I'M BACK!!! lol. need help, of course. (AWD removal) Topic is solved

Hi everyone, it's been a long time since I have been here. I bought a new car so haven't been driving the 2000 V70XC. But I am giving it away to a friend who needs a car and I need to get it running. I hope you can help. Last year I took out the AWD transfer case (whew!). What a job. It ran fine but...

Re: $400! Cheaper key replacement? 2011 XC60

$400 was a rough estimate over the phone jimmy57. I think it will be closer to $450, with $199 of that the actual fob and the rest programming charges.

Re: $400! Cheaper key replacement? 2011 XC60

Thanks anyway oragex, but as best I can figure out that software costs 500 EUR! lol. That is about $150 more than the replacement fob. Good try though. My GF is the GM for a Maserati dealership so maybe there is some discount she can get. They occasionally get used Volvos in trade and I'm sure some ...

$400! Cheaper key replacement? 2011 XC60

OMG, $400 for a key fob replacement from Volvo for a 2011 xc60! Anyone know of a cheaper alternative? I have one working key. It's a long story, but some jerk in another city who I don't even know stole my key.
